Banned and Challenged Newbery Books

I had the privilege of serving on the 2024 Newbery Committee with such a group of rockstars. I could not be prouder of our winner, The Eyes and the Impossible by Dave Eggers and our Honors, Eagle Drums by Nasuġraq Rainey Hopson, Elf Dog and Owl Head, by M. T. Anderson, Mexikid: a Graphic Memoir by Pedro Martín, Simon Sort of Says by Erin Bow, and The Many Assassinations of Samir, the Seller of Dreams by Daniel Nayeri. It’s gratifying to see these books join the company of so many impactful titles.
