We had a fantastic time at Friday's emotional Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards ceremony (we laughed, we cried, we admired Yuyi Morales's killer style and kidney-donating selflessness) and Saturday's thought-provoking Horn Book at Simmons Colloquium: "Out of the Box" (we laughed, we drank champagne, we made box puns).

All this week we'll be posting pictures, timelines, and more from this jam-packed weekend, so keep comin' back! Here's a preview, but in the meantime, check out our BGHB Week celebration (with reviews, interviews, and BGHB-related silliness), read the recap by 2016 BGHB judge Betsy Bird, and see live tweets from both events @HornBook.
