Looking for something to fill the void left when the Today Show failed to interview the 2012 Newbery and Caldecott winners? This one’s for you.
First, a question or the masses:
Articles I read about the Today Show Newbery/Caldecott snub says the interview has taken place “for many years” or it was “traditional” or an “annual” event – does anyone have the inside scoop on how many years it actually occurred? After searching high and low, I was able to come up with four instances.
2010: Rebecca Stead and Jerry Pinkney
2009: Neil Gaiman and Beth Krommes
2008: Laura Amy Schlitz and Brian Selznick
2005: Cynthia Kadohata and Kevin Henkes
