They usually sneak up on me, but not this year! The Newbery, Caldecott, Printz, and a dozen plus more awards will be announced at 7:45 a.m. CST on Monday, January 23. Here’s a little video clip that I received from Open Road Media honoring a couple of Newbery Medal winning authors to whet your appetite. It’s a little commercial there at the end, but the first 2 minutes or so are interesting. It’s too good not to share.
I’ve been so consumed with the Cybils that I haven’t given the ALA awards too much thought, but I’m guessing there will be some overlap.
