One of the highlights of the Midwinter Meeting, as many a children’s and teen librarian will tell you, is the Youth Media Awards. You don’t have to be here in Seattle to see it live–the event is available by live webcast, too!
Since arriving in Seattle, I’ve already enjoyed a number of YMA prediction discussions with friends and colleagues. We’ve talked about the merits and potential problem points of our favorite reads of 2012, and I am sure these conversations will continue throughout the weekend right up until the live announcement. It’s a conversation I am sure will come up at the ALSC Speed Networking event tonight! I can’t wait to hear what more of my colleagues think are the most award-worthy books of the year.
What have been your favorite reads of 2012? What titles are you predicting will take home high accolades on Monday?
