roger right2 From the Editor: August 2011Katrina Hedeen, Cathie Mercier, and I are busy pulling together this year’s Horn Book at Simmons, a one-day colloquium on October 1st at Simmons College’s Center for the Study of Children’s Literature. Held the day after the Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards, the colloquium, titled “Engaging Worlds, Real and Imagined,” brings participants together with the BGHB winners and Honor Book recipients, Horn Book staff, and Simmons faculty to explore themes in literature, trends in publishing, and possibilities for bringing young readers and the award books together. Registration, which includes a ticket to the Awards ceremony on the evening of September 30th, is limited and filling up quickly.

I hope you will join us.
