You can look forward to my Newbery predictions next week, but first a quick reminder: you can watch the announcement live on the web! I’m disappointed that we won’t be in school for the announcement (it’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day), but I know I will be up bright and early to watch! It will be a little lonely, seeing as I won’t be surrounded by 40 students shouting, hooting, hollering, clapping, and generally being on the edge of their seat.
If you are like me and you are not attending ALA Midwinter next week but you still want to watch the winners announced live you can go to the live webcast of the Newbery and other awards on 1/18 at 7:45 a.m. EST (the link can be found in the press release) . I’ll be tweeting my reactions live, barring an unforeseen exhaustion, aka oversleeping.
