Subscribe to The Horn Book


Apologies to all who tried to come here or elsewhere on our website this weekend only to be greeted with warnings of MALWARE.

The Horn Book primaries complete, you can now look forward to endless commercials from Mr. Kincaid and Ms. Cavatica. Is this even a fair fight?

Also: I hope everyone is looking forward–for reals–to the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award and Horn Book at Simmons Colloquium weekend, September 28th and 29th.

As you can see, this introductory speech has a ways to go. Hope you will join me at the destination.

    Could not love the picture for this post more. Chita forevah!

  2. Roger and others–it doesn’t seem possible to register for the Simmons event without having to pay full price. There’s no way to click on the subscriber fee. Help!
