The Children's Services Division of the Maryland Library Association, in co-sponsorship with ESRL, held the third annual Maryland Mock Newbery program on Monday, January 9. 46 librarians from around the state met in Denton to discuss and vote on five of the best American children's books published in 2011.
Our winner was Okay for Now, by Gary Schmidt. Stay tuned for the announcement of the real Newbery Medal winner on January 23. For more information about the Youth Media Awards, and to find out how to watch the press conference via webcast, please take a look at this press release:
