Video Clip: 2009 Newbery & Caldecott Winners on Today Show
The day-after Today Show interview has become a tradition for the winners of the Newbery and Caldecott medals. After last year’s debacle, I was wondering how this year would go. It turned out to be pretty good. I was happy to see that they’ve got Al Roker running the show this time around. The wonderful blog Educating Alice made mention yesterday of how Neil Gaiman is bringing some celebrity power to the Newbery. I have to agree. The moment that seals the deal for me is when Gaiman takes a moment to announce who will direct The Graveyard Book film. That’s gotta be a first on the day after winning the award.
