The Battle Commanders have announced the contenders for SLJ’s Battle of the Books, which will itself commence–when? March-ish?
It’s a good list, and brave, I think, of the Commanders to make their selections before the ALA awards show up to toss egg in everyone’s faces. While I have no plans to repeat my running commentary of last year, you can expect occasional rim- and potshots from this direction. The judges would be wise to avoid any mention of fruit.
