As November draws near, The Horn Book debates a very serious question: what children’s literature character should be president?
This week, four Republican candidates will present their presidential platforms for your consideration. Advocate for your candidate of choice or nominate another — civil discourse only, please! — in the comments; you’ll also be able to write in your faves come voting time. The polls will open for your votes Thursday, August 30th, and close at noon on Friday, the 31st. We’ll announce the winning Republican presidential candidate (and his or her running mate, the second-place finisher) Friday afternoon.
Beginning next Tuesday, September 4th, the Democrats will have their say. Polls will open for voting on Democratic candidates on Thursday, September 6th, with results announced Friday afternoon.
