Join me at the table
At the Newbery Committee final deliberation meetings, there is a giant traveling trunk shipped by ALSC containing all the books for discussion, and these are generally brought out and spread all over the table, and get handled and referenced throughout the discussion.
As we get ready for the polls to open Tuesday morning, I want to offer this space as “table” to bring up any new comments about the ten titles on our shortlist, and to look at comparing them: against the criteria, and against each other. In the universe in which these 10 are the only worthy and eligible contenders for the award this year…which deserve the medal and why? Here they are, in alphabetical order by title across the table, with links to the most recent posts on them.
