Behind the Newbery Medal

Have you ever been curious about how children's books earn that shiny sticker?  Join children's librarian Sondra Eklund, who was on the 2019 Newbery Selection Committee.  Without giving away any deep dark secrets, she'll discuss how the process works and how the committee chooses the most distinguished children's book of the year.  Teachers, librarians, parents, kids, and anyone who loves children's books are all encouraged to attend.  Please register at least 24 hours in advance, when you will receive a Zoom link to attend.  Age 10 to adult.
