Books on Film: An Astounding Assortment of Newbery Winners
It’s an exclusive club, authors who have won Newbery medals and honors. So when Random House managed to get Christopher Paul Curtis, Jenni Holm, Kirby Larson, Louis Sachar, Jerry Spinelli, Rebecca Stead, and Clare Vanderpool in the same room in Seattle during ALA Midwinter, it was a rare treat. The conversation (moderated by librarian action figure Nancy Pearl) did not disappoint.
For fans of the Newbery, this is required viewing.
I was thrilled to see they filmed the whole thing and make it available online. Click here (or the image below) to head over to Watch. Connect. Read. and check it out.
