Forget name badge ribbons–the Caldecott 75th Anniversary button is the hot bling here at Midwinter! It’s so exciting to see the fabulous logo created by 2008 Caldecott Medal Winner Brian Selznick in its fancy new swag format. The buttons are a great visual poll of who has joined the 2012-2013 celebration. Want to learn more? Check out the Caldecott 75th Anniversary website.
And along those lines, I met with the 75th Anniversary Task Force this morning and fantastic things are in store for the final months of the celebration. If you think the new button is snazzy, wait until you hear what is in store for the banquet at ALA Annual 2013 in Chicago. There will be red carpet events both online and in person–did someone say formal attire and signature cocktail?
