A preview of our March issue.

Heavy Medal Is Back

Crystal Ball with possible Newbery contenders

It’s here. Heavy Medal, SLJ’s mock Newbery blog, resumes September 4.

There, bloggers Nina Lindsay, supervising librarian for children’s services at Oakland (CA) Public Library, California and Jonathan Hunt, library media teacher for Modesto (CA) City Schools, return to discuss and debate potential titles in the running for this year’s Newbery Award. Bestowed annually by the American Library Association (ALA), the Award honors “the most distinguished American children’s book” of the year.
