You’ve been preparing all year for this moment: The announcement of the American Library Association (ALA) Youth Media Awards. Grab some coffee and join the fun by tuning into School Library Journals first-ever live pre-game show presented via Google Hangout at 7:30 EST on January 27, 2014.

Expect a no-holds-barred conversation about the most highly anticipated honors in children’s publishing, including the prestigious Newbery and Caldecott awards. Stay tuned after the award announcements for a post-game wrap-up, and Bird and Ess will respond to your comments and questions via the live chat and on Twitter (#sljpregame).

The 7:30 a.m. pre-game show will precede the award announcements, which will be streamed live at 8 a.m. from ALA’s Midwinter Meeting in Philadelphia. After the announcements, the SLJ post-game show will commence at around 9:05 a.m.

  1. Since any event with a pre-game and post-game show deserves a half-time show too, I’d like to nominate the Univited Loud Precision Band from Sandra Boynton’s Blue Moo.

    (And thanks for the pre-game and post-game. Sounds like fun!)
