The nice thing about writing your own newsletter is that you can editorialize. So I’ll start by saying this about the Newbery Awards: “Pax, you were robbed.” Which is not to take from the many worthy winners, including book three of Congressman John Lewis’s March series.
A complete list of winners and honor books can be found here. Below are two highlights from Harper’s honorees.
