Mock Newbery

January 21 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
newberyAfter having a very successful mock Caldecott for the past few years at the library, we've decided to try our hand at a mock Newbery for the first time! Unlike the Caldecott, the Newbery award is given to the most distinguished book in children's literature, not just picture books. Like the Caldecott, it is the best known and most discussed children's book award in the country. And believe me, there will be much to discuss about these 8 books we will be considering: Freedom Over Me by Ashley Bryan Raymie Nightingale by Kate DiCamillo Hour of the Bees by Lindsay Eager The Inquisitor's Tale, or the Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog by Adam Gidwitz Garvey's Choice by Nikki Grimes Pax by Sara Pennypacker Ghost by Jason Reynolds Wolf Hollow by Lauren Wolk..Read More
