For fifty years, the Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards have been recognizing the very best in children’s books. Last Friday, we celebrated 2016’s winning books with the honorees, judges, and fellow children’s book enthusiasts, then had a day of thoughtful discussion on Saturday. Here’s a roundup of all our online coverage of the winners, the ceremony, and the colloquium; look for more (including acceptance speeches) in the January/February 2017 issue of The Horn Book Magazine.
