Judges on their way!

d idol prime 22.jpgOur  judges (Maeve Visser Knoth, Jessica Tackett MacDonald, and Barbara Scotto as chair) will be meeting this weekend to select this year’s Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winners. What will they pick??? (I have no idea.) Katrina Hedeen and I head to New York early next week for the announcement, for which I will be partnered by the lovely and talented Rebecca Stead, 2010 BGHB Fiction winner for When You Reach Me. If you are attending School Library Journal‘s sold-out Day of Dialog on Wednesday, you will see Rebecca and me do our stuff live at 4:30. We will also be announcing the winners in a blow-by-blow on Twitter (@hornbook #BGHB15) and on shortly thereafter. Please join me in wishing Barbara, Jessica, and Maeve the best of luck in their deliberations, and that they may arrive at their decisions with at least some of the holiday weekend left to enjoy.
