February 2019 Horn Book Herald - ALA Youth Media Awards Edition

2019 ALA Awards

Congratulations to all of the 2019 ALA Youth Media Award–winning authors and illustrators and their publishers. In this issue, we chat with Meg Medina, newly minted Newbery Medalist for Merci Suárez Changes Gears. You'll also find Horn Book reviews of the 2019 winners, history (and critique) of the awards, and more interviews with the award-winning authors and illustrators. And, as always, look for the Newbery, Caldecott, and CSK awards speeches in the July/August issue of The Horn Book Magazine: Special Issue: Awards.
