My (Censored) Caldecott Diary: Part I of III
I was a member of the 2014 Caldecott committee.
During that year, I kept a Day One journal. Now, I’m going to share it with you – typos (I blame auto-correct), lame journal jokes (unfortunately, no one to blame but myself there) and all.
In classic journal form, I update it in bursts and there’s way more mundane stuff than interesting stuff. If you’re looking for juicy details about specific books, you won’t find them here. But I do hope this will provide a glimpse into what it’s like to be on the committee.
Today is Part I – all my journal entries from January 1, 2013 – May 1, 2013.
I blacked out anything private/that could get me in trouble – sorry about that.
Look for Part II, coming in September.
