Link Du Jour: Watch the Newbery and Caldecott Awards Live
It’s never too early to bookmark, right? I found out via One-Minute Book Reviews that The American Library Association will continue the best idea ever to happen to their Youth Media Awards: the live webcast. From the ALA site:
The American Library Association (ALA) will provide a free live webcast of its Youth Media Awards, a national announcement of the top books and media for children and young adults, on Jan. 18, at 7:45 a.m. EST. The award announcements are made as part of the ALA Midwinter Meeting, which will bring together librarians, publishers, authors and guests to the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center from Jan. 15 to 19.
I’ve watched the last two announcement webcasts and I highly recommend taking part. Bookmark this site to get in on the action on January 18.
To avoid being uni-technologied when it comes to getting the word out, ALA will also announce the winners via Twitter. Click here to subscribe to the feed.
