“We are all winners.”

As promised, I am reminding you that Kwame Alexander and I will be announcing the winners of the 2017 Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards on Wednesday, May 31st at/around 4:45 PM EST and you can watch for free from the comfort of your office/home/tiki bar. Live from New York! I hope all the envelopes will be in order.

Trivia question: in Judith Krantz’s masterpiece Scruples, where did the accountants file the Oscar envelopes?

Trivia question #2: whose Newbery speech is the title of this blog post from?
