From the Editor - November 2023

We hope you enjoyed our first-ever virtual live Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards ceremony on November 3! It’s now available free on demand for all to watch (or rewatch!) my conversation with Angeline Boulley, Jarrett J. Krosoczka, and Jack Wong, and to hear their acceptance speeches and those of all the wonderful honorees — plus bonus interview with Boston Globe Acting Books Editor Francie Lin and #BGHB23 judges. We’re hard at work on the January/February issue of the Magazine, which continues the BGHB celebration — and starts our yearlong Horn Book centennial celebration. Please help us spread the word; it’s a great time to subscribe. (Logo: Lolly Robinson)
