In less than two weeks, the ALA 2018 Youth Media Awards will be announced at #alamw18. Hundreds and hundreds of librarians will be at the press conference which will take place on Monday, Feb. 12, at 8 a.m. MT at the Colorado Convention Center. They will be eagerly anticipating the announcement of the 2018 Newbery, Caldecott, Coretta Scott King, Printz, Pura Belpré, Sibert, Geisel, Schneider Family, and more. The excitement continues to build as children’s librarians and other lovers of children’s literature engage in animated discussions about titles they read and loved over the course of the year.
Are you excited? Will you be participating in the YMA Pajama Party from your home, school, or library? Do you have a title you are hoping, hoping, hoping will take home a medal? Let us know in the comments below.
