I find it hard to believe that we’re just two weeks from The Announcement at ALA. At the end of this week Calling Caldecott will become Calling MOCK Caldecott when all of you get to vote for the winners and honor books. Here’s the schedule. All times listed are Eastern Standard Time.
|Friday, January 17||Initial ballot announced|
|9 a.m. Monday, January 20||Ballot 1 open for voting|
|9 a.m. Tuesday, January 21||Voting on ballot 1 ends|
|Noon Tuesday, January 21||Ballot 1 results announced on Calling Caldecott|
|9 a.m. Wednesday, January 22||Ballot 2 opens|
|9 a.m. Thursday, January 23||Voting ends|
|Noon Thursday, January 23||Calling Caldecott mock vote results posted|
But wait! We’ll be taking a second look at a few of the contenders this week. And after the voting is complete and Calling Caldecott has our winners, we won’t go away until we have a chance to weigh in on the actual winners. Robin will be at the ALA press conference in Philadelphia and report from there. Martha and I will be watching online and will let you know what we think of the choices.
