We’re really pleased with the range of the National Book Award longlist! These are excellent choices with lots of possibilities for Newbery overlap. Sharon and I decided to divvy up the early spring titles for September discussions, so look for posts on BOOKED, RAYMIE NIGHTINGALE, and PAX in the very near future. In the meantime, please feel free to make general comments on the NBA longlist as well as predictions about what may make the shortlist that will be announced on October 12.
