Last fall, I got an exciting phone call from the great Kathleen Horning (whose new book, From Cover to Cover: Evaluating and Reviewing Children's Books, revised edition will be out late April) asking if I'd run for a spot on the 2012 Newbery Committee. Needless to say, I was pretty speechless and thrilled. And of course, I said I'd love to. I have a strong writing, editing and literature background in my pre-librarian life so it'd be exciting to bring all of that to the table.
There are 16 candidates and only 8 spots. If you're an ALA and an ALSC member, you've gotten an email to vote for all kinds of committees (as well as the new ALSC and ALA presidents) so if you're inclined, check the box next to my name. I'd love to represent Allegheny County in 2012!
