2019 Heavy Medal: August Suggestions
Although members of the Newbery Committee would continue to make monthly suggestions throughout the year, at Heavy Medal, this is our last monthly official suggestion post. In September, we will start our book discussions and readers can suggest titles in comments during the last few months of 2018.
For now, the rules are the same as the past few months:
Please post in comments your August Mock Newbery suggestions: only titles that have already been published in 2018, that are original works by American authors (citizens or residents,) that you have not suggested before (but it’s ok if someone else already suggested). Please list between 1 to 5 titles with their authors — no justification or explanation needed.
If you wish, please check the Terms and Criteria for details of eligibility and criteria.
The suggestions are due on August 7th. On the 8th (or shortly after) we’ll post a cumulated list.
