Have you ever been curious about how children’s books earn that shiny sticker? Join children’s librarian Sondra Eklund, who was on the 2019 Newbery Selection Committee. Without giving away any deep dark secrets (and how deep and dark they are is part of the fun), she’ll discuss how the process works and how the committee chooses the most distinguished children’s book of the year. Learn why you should always ask permission before acknowledging a librarian in your book, because anyone who publishes a children’s book in the United States is eligible for the Newbery Medal.
