The ALA Youth Media Awards Banquet!

Tomorrow morning at 8:00am PT (11:00am EST), the American Library Association will broadcast LIVE the winners of this year's Youth Media Awards - such as the John Newbery Medal (best text), the Randolph Caldecott Medal (best illustrated), the Coretta Scott King Book Award and the Michael L. Printz Award, among others. This is the red carpet of award shows for children's literature.
     Afterwards, the ALA website will feature an award wrap up and post video messages by the winners to their YouTube Channel. That should be fun to see. Equate it to Sally Fields when she won her 1985 Oscar Award for "Places in the Heart."

     Can't wait!

Excited for the awards, and am especially liking the 11:00 a.m. EST time part.
