BGHB wrapped up tight

The 2017 Boston Globe-Horn Book judges have made their choices, and I will be happy to share them with you on May 31st, when Kwame Alexander and I will announce the winners around 5:00PM at SLJ’s Day of Dialogue in NYC and simultaneously via live-stream video on our BGHB page. Until then, please join me in thanking our judges–Pauletta Bracy, Sheila Geraty, and Julie Roach as chair–and Monica Higgins, who shepherded the process skillfully.

I welcome all authors who published a children’s or YA book between June 1 of last year to May 31 of this to dream they are in this box. You never know, and you won’t know until May 31st. See you in NYC!
