From the Editor – May 2012

roger right2 From the Editor   May 2012Our Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards judges (Lauren Adams, Megan Lambert, and chair Thom Barthelmess) will finish their deliberations this month. I will be announcing the winners on Thursday, June 7 at 1:00 P.M. at BookExpo America in New York City. The press conference will take place in the Librarians’ Lounge (Booth #2148), and all BookExpo attendees are invited. There will be snacks and special guests, I am told. If you can’t be there, check out later that afternoon, as we will be webcasting a video recording from the event.

    A challenge: It is my turn to pick a book for my book club and I want to choose a children’s book. I am a long-time elementary teacher, but most of the other women are not educators. I feel as though I should pick a classic. Any suggestions?
