Awards: 2017 ALA Youth Media Award Winners

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.

 William C. Morris Award
