Printz New Printz blog

SLJ has started a blog about the Printz, so head on over. I was on the first committee (Monster) when the criteria were still being hammered out; as I whine in the comments over there, it doesn’t look like YALSA has managed to finish them even more than ten years later.

I editorialized about the Printz before its debut in 2000 (in a very different publishing landscape) and Jonathan Hunt wrote about the award’s first ten years in the July/August 2009 Magazine. The older I get the more often I tell people to know their history; dig in.
