KidLit on the Red Carpet
By now you’ve heard all about the outfits, activities, and refreshments that were part of the Caldecott 75th Anniversary Red Carpet event that took place before the 2013 Newbery-Caldecott-Wilder banquet at ALA Annual in Chicago. But you haven’t heard from the Newbery-Caldecott-Wilder winners themselves and now you can!
Pop some popcorn, mix up a Caldecocktail, and sit back and enjoy these enchanting interviews. Find out how Caldecott winner Jon Klassen hopes to live up to the award he’s been given. Discover what book makes Wilder winner Katherine Paterson’s grandchildren bloodthirsty. Learn how giggling librarians were almost convinced to take back Peter Brown’s Caldecott honor.
