This week marks the debut of our new publication The Horn Book Herald, which will arrive in your inbox no more than four times a year. The first issue is devoted to our choices for the best summer reading and includes a link to a handy PDF you can take along to the library or bookstore. As a subscriber to Notes from the Horn Book, you should have received it; if it didn’t come, you can find the complete list of recommendations at hbook.com/summer-reading-2014.
And of you are attending BEA this year, be among the first to hear the news: I will be announcing the winners of the 2014 Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards on Saturday, May 31st at the Librarians Lounge, booth number 663 in the Javits Center, NYC. The judges (Claire Gross, Amy Pattee, chair Nina Lindsay) are meeting in Boston later this month to make their decisions, and we are all busy speculating on What Will Win. Check out @HornBook on Twitter, The Horn Book on Facebook, and hbook.com Saturday afternoon to find out how it all went down.
