With the Mock Newbery coming up on Sunday, I should really be posting about the books, getting deeper into discussion, and preparing for that. But I’ll admit, I’ve been distracted a little bit by this Bloomberg article.
I don’t know that I have much to add, other than confusion at the outrage being spewed at the Newbery lately. Wow. This study seems inacurate and the article an excuse to garner press with negativity.
So, I’d just like to take a second and thank every member of every Newbery Committee of the past, present (and future). Your work is honored.
Back tomorrow with your regularly scheduled program.
