2016 Newbery Committee

Introductions were made and members introduced the regional snacks they brought to sustain us through deliberations.

Viki spoke to us about balloting.

  • Once a book leaves the table its gone
  • Winner has to have at least 8 1st place votes and be 8 votes over the next one. Be cautious about making slight changes as you make several ballots. Think about overall winners and what you are giving votes/points and why.
  • Cautioned us to have a winner before we leave on Saturday
  • The press release is when we really put in words why the winner was selected.

Ernie discussed the agenda and process. 

We discussed the Honor balloting and how we will think about this.

Please list any suggestions you have for future education topics, publications, or online resources (such as toolkits) to be developed based on the committee’s work?

New diversity statements in the manual are a great start in this direction but future committee orientations will need to include this element of book discussion.
