A Note from Me (Aug 20, 2021)

Dear friends: Happy Anniversary to me! Yes, Richard and I officially tied the knot* ten years ago today. And to continue in the same nuptial vein: congratulations to eternal friend of the Horn Book Katie Bircher, who got married** to her guy Wilber (who apparently has thus far successfully resisted...
      

A Note from Me (Aug 6, 2021)

Dear friends: While I wish I could tell you I’ve been off the grid for the past month in some fabulous wilderness outpost, the reasons for my absence from your inboxes are far more mundane: Deadlines, deadlines, deadlines. I’m avoiding at least three more as I type. But that’s how...
      

We're venturing out

For more than a year, we’ve stayed a safe distance from everybody else, worn facemasks, followed guidelines, and scanned the horizon for the specks of approaching vaccines.  When vaccines arrived, we older ones got in line; but our daughter, like so many daughters, impatient to see us inoculated (and also, perhaps, impatient to have loving and protected grandchild-caregivers again) jumped on the internet and found us appointments an hour...
      

A Note from Me (Jul 2, 2021)

Dear friends: ALA is behind us but the speeches remain, as ever, in the July/August issue of The Horn Book Magazine. (Has anyone seen a copy yet? I have not.) The September/October issue is already bearing down upon us, and I don’t even want to think about the amount of...
      

A Note from Me (Jun 25, 2021)

Dear friends: How about them Boston Globe–Horn Book winners? Nothing like good news on a Wednesday to make people happy. Thank you again to our judges Luann Toth (chair), Shoshana Flax, and Nicholl Denice Montgomery; and thank you to our winners’ publishers for hearing the news with such happiness. I...
      

A Note from Me (Jun 18, 2021)

Dear friends: Slinging on my bowtie to announce the winners of the 2021 Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards on Wednesday at noon EDT on Hbook.com. I like ʼem and hope that you do, too. (Note to self: also remember to shave.) You can review the winners since 1967 here to see...
      

A Note from Me (Jun 11, 2021)

Dear friends: So sorry to have missed you last week (dummy-reading-duty called!), but I hope everyone had an enjoyable long weekend/Memorial Day holiday. One of your number took perplexing exception to something anodyne I wrote here referencing Kamala Harris; I think our Vice President is in all ways wonderful, and...
      

A Note from Me (May 28, 2021)

Dear friends: ALA is upon us! At least in HB land — I was just looking at layouts of The Speeches, gorgeous, and great speeches as well. That’s all you’ll get out of me. In her tenure as HB editor, Anita Silvey limited herself to saying “they aren’t too long,”...
      

Field Notes: Pandemic Diary: Bilingual Virtual Programming

Children’s literature has the unique ability to inspire a lifelong love of reading for children and their families. One of the books that shaped my own understanding of growing up biracial, as a Honduran American, was Arroz con leche: canciones y ritmos populares de América Latina / Rice with Milk:...
      

A Note from Me (May 21, 2021)

Dear friends: I need to pass along a curse. Last week I did a Talks with Roger interview with Nidhi Chanani about her new graphic novel Jukebox. And now this song is stuck in my head, but I figure if enough of you listen to it, it might leave me...
