Upcoming Events for Children's Librarians
National Book Award Finalists Announced:
Six finalists instead of the traditional five were announced in the Young People's Literature category of the National Book Awards, on October 11, 2011. School Library Journal reports that when the nominees were announced on the "Think Out Loud" radio program, two of the judges immediately noticed one nominee was omitted and replaced with a similar-sounding title. The sixth nominee was added to correct that error, and the book named originally that was not meant to be on the list remains a nominee.
The finalists are:
Young People's Literature Judges: Marc Aronson (Panel Chair), Ann Brashares, Matt de la Peña, Nikki Grimes, Will Weaver. For more information, see: www.schoollibraryjournal.com/slj/home/892386-312/oops_national_book_foundation_unveils.html.csp
