We just can’t get enough of our Boston Globe–Horn Book Award winners! After spending two great days with them at the ceremony on Friday night and the colloquium on Saturday, we’re back at the office sorting through the weekend’s tweets, speeches, and (300-plus!) photos.

We’ve compiled a timeline of Friday night’s highlights; Saturday’s are coming soon. Photographs and video are on the way as well.
