We picked our winners today!

So proud of our 15 Adult Mock Newbery Club members.  After discussing 15 titles, we narrowed it down to 1 Mock Newbery Medal winner:  Splendors and Glooms by Laura Amy Schlitz.

2 Honor Books were chosen:

No Crystal Stair by Vaunda Nelson

Bomb by Steve Sheinkin

There were so many terrific titles we read this year--we should thank the authors and publishers for sharing their talents with the readers, young and old.  Here's to the search for Newbery next year!

And if you'd like to see which title actually wins, watch the live podcast at

It begins at 8:00 a.m. PACIFIC TIME, so if you're in South Bend, the podcast begins at 11:00 a.m. (you might want to log on early to be sure you can watch--ALA limits the # of computers that can connect)--and then the Newbery will be announced last, around 11:30 a.m. (maybe later).
