The ALSC Bill Morris Seminar: Book Evaluation Training began in 2008 with the goal of bringing new ALSC members with limited evaluation experience together with those who have served on ALSC’s media evaluation committees.  The seminar provides an environment where experienced members can mentor those new to book evaluation in the group process and in children’s media evaluation techniques, with the result being new and emerging leaders for future ALSC evaluation committees.

The Morris Endowment supports those selected to attend the training seminar by offering the seminar at no charge to the attendee.  This includes all materials, breakfast, lunch and afternoon break on Friday.  To help defray additional costs for hotel and other expenses, a $200 stipend for each attendee will be provided by the endowment.

Morris was a long-time ALSC member and friend, the recipient of the first ALSC Distinguished Service Award as well as an advocate for children’s librarians and literature.  Morris was former vice-president and director of library promotion at HarperCollins Children’s Books.  The ALSC William C. Morris Endowment was established in 2000 and activated in 2003 upon his death.  Morris envisioned his endowment funding programs, publications, events, and/or awards that would promote excellence in children’s literature.
