From the Editor - June 2022

Please join us next Wednesday, June 22, at noon EDT for the announcement of the 2022 Boston Globe–Horn Book Award winners. This year marks our fifty-fifth anniversary — it’s not the Newbery centennial, but certainly a point of pride. And speaking of Pride — we’re continuing to celebrate LGBTQIA+ voices all throughout June, including articles, interviews, reviews, bundles, and a forthcoming rainbow-colored booklist by our fab summer interns. For more page-turning recommendations, see our Summer Reading list, with printable PDF to bring to your library or bookstore — or to ALA; stop by booth 1046 next week to say hi.

From the June 2022 issue of Notes from the Horn Book.
