Teen Tuesday – Awards, Awards, Awards!

We are waiting with bated breath for January 28th when the winners of the Youth Media Awards will be announced at the American Library Association’s Midwinter meeting.  Finally, after months of speculation, we’ll learn what books get to wear the shiny stickers that say “Newbery,” “Caldecott,”  “Printz,” and “Morris”—just to name a few.  Follow the awards via the Twitter hashtag #ALAyma or check the Facebook page at facebook.com/alayma where there is even a link to watch the ceremonies live!
