>over at Nina Lindsay and SLJ’s new mock-Newbery blog, “Heavy Medal.” Lots of titles are being suggested, including the two BGHB Honor Books Savvy and Shooting the Moon. I’ll be meeting authors Ingrid Law and Frances O’Roark Dowell this Friday at the BGHB Awards, held as usual in the swank confines of the Boston Athenaeum. I hope to see some of you there, too.
