ALA Monday

In case you weren’t at the ALA Midwinter meeting or listening in on the livestream, check out the winners/honorees for this year’s ALA awards. Lots of great choices, some surprises. I wasn’t really pulling for any particular book or author, so overall I’m pleased with the results.

I was excited to see Susan Cooper win the Margaret A. Edwards Award for lifetime achievement in writing for young adults. Under the Mesquite by Guadalupe Garcia McCall, winner of the Belpré Author Award, sounds fantastic too.

What are your initial reactions to this morning’s award list?

    Thanks for the link! I did a Google search, but then decided to check my blog feed, and here it is. 🙂

    I’m happy that Inside Out & Back Again got an honor; I love that book. And hooray for Wonderstruck — I hadn’t thought of it for the Schneider, but that’s perfect. Yay for the amazing Kadir Nelson!

    Lots of titles new to me to explore. I think that’s what I love the most about book awards.

      I totally agree! I can see feeling disappointed if you were really hoping for a particular book to be honored, but I love that these lists help me discover lots of amazing books I might have missed otherwise.
