Mark Your Calendars: Mock Newbery Update

May 6, 2009

Mark your calendars for Saturday, January 9th, 2010 for the joint WLA/OLA Mock Newbery.  It will be held at Multnomah County Library’s Central branch in downtown Portland.  I am so excited to be a part of this and I hope some of our FVRL staff will be able to attend.  There will be at least TWO current members of the Newbery committee in attendance, including the current chair of the committee!  I’m hoping that in addition to reading some great books, we’ll get a glimpse at what it’s like to be on such a prestigious committee and what goes on behind those closed doors.  I expect the list of titles to read to come out in late October/early November.  In the meantime, let me know if you’ve read anything especially Newbery-worthy!
