Watch the Golden Globes last night? Well, it's award season for books, too!
The big news today for librarians, parents, teachers, and fans of #kidlit, is the announcement of the American Library Association's Youth Media Awards. I'll be driving to work as the live webcast begins, but I'll be checking in as soon as I get to work!
Most people know the Newbery and Caldecott Medal awards, but there are many others. You can check them out the complete press release here: http://www.ala.org/news/mediapresscenter/presskits/youthmediaawards/alayouthmediaawards
You can watch a live stream of the event beginning at 8:00AM EST today, January 11, 2016. Here's the link: http://ala.unikron.com/2016/ .
You can also follow the Twitter hashtag #ALAyma for live updates.
I hope to see a few of my favorites!
