From the Editor – July 2016

Roger_EdBriant_191x300If you missed ALA in Orlando — or if you just miss ALA in Orlando — the Horn Book is here to help. We have published the acceptance speeches by and profiles of the Coretta Scott King, Newbery, Caldecott, and Wilder winners, and Siân and I discuss the conference on our post-ALA podcast. Please also read Christopher Myers’s thoughts on Orlando as he seeks to find at least part of an answer to the tragedy that struck the city in June — in the hearts of the librarians who flocked there soon after.
