Choosing Award Winning Books

Wednesday, May 9 | 7:00-8:30 PM | Downtown Multipurpose Room

Ever wonder how on earth a book gets chosen as a national award winner? Or what the process is for selecting award books?

Join local librarians who have served on American Library Association book award committees as they discuss the process used to select national award-winning books and authors. Panelists include: Meaghan Battle, 2010 member of the John H. Newbery Medal for youth; Erin Helmrich, 2012 Chair of the Michael L. Printz Award for teens; and Jacqueline Sasaki, 2008-2011 member of The Reading List for adults.

This event is for adults and teens (grade 4 and up).


I've always wondered...
