We’ve just put the July/August Horn Book Magazine to bed (with very firm orders to stay there until June 29th). At 176 pages, it is quite the fattest ALA Awards issue we’ve published but it’s what’s on those pages that has me so excited. Because so much of the content is embargoed until after the Newbery-Caldecott-Wilder banquet on the 28th in San Francisco, I can’t really tell you anything, but it is jam packed with good stuff. (And come on guys, you know me. I’ve seen about thirty-five years of ALA Awards go by and don’t get excited easily.)

This coming Monday, June 15th, Children’s Books Boston is holding its second annual Wicked Boston Children’s Book Trivia Contest, hosted once again by Jack Gantos. I am predicting another win for the home team.

And next Saturday, June 20th, the Horn Book will be exhibiting at Hubbub, in and around Copley Square in Boston. I have no illusions that our modest display of Boston Globe-Horn Book winners and giveaways of Magazines and summer reading suggestions can compete with face-painting and Mo Willems, but I would love to say hello to any and all of you who would be so nice as to stop by.
