2018 (John) Newbery Award December 15, 2017 Quarterly Report

Ann Crewdson's picture

Thank you so much, Nina, KT and Cecilia for the opportunity to serve on the 2018 John Newbery Award Committee.  It was an honor to be appointed.  I never would have thought, in my wildest dreams, that I'd have the chance to work among such congenial, hardworking and knowledgeable people, to select the best American children's book for 2018.  I am deeply grateful.  I would like a chance to debrief, if possible.  I understand there might be changes made to the committee's definitions, procedures or process. Will the membership be able to speak to this during the ALSC Board Meeting in New Orleans? I would like to contribute and offer my perspective (within the parameter allowed).  Thank you for the consideration.

I can also talk to the chair and priority group consultant if this is preferable.  I'd be happy to do that.  Many thanks.
