From the Editor – October 2017

We are just done with this year’s Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards and Horn Book at Simmons Colloquium: “Resistance.” With record attendance for both events, I can’t remember a more engaged and enthusiastic audience, and our speakers and discussion leaders were variously inspiring and provocative, and always informative. Congratulations to our awardees, and thank you to our judges, speakers, and the Horn Book and Simmons staff who made the weekend such a success! Our January/February Horn Book Magazine issue will include the winners’ acceptance speeches; in the meanwhile we are busily posting photos from both events at hbook.com/tag/bghb17/. Same time (or thereabouts) next year, and we hope to see you there.

  1. Dear Roger,

    I just heard Katherine Paterson give one of her eloquent, inspirational speeches at the Concord Library Oct 21st. I would so love to read it again. Would you please try to get it from her to publish it in the Horn Book for all of us? I think you would appreciate it too.

    Thank you,
    Miriam Marecek
