ALAYMA Wishes January 11, 2016Posted by ccbooks in Uncategorized.
The winners of the ALA Youth Media Awards will be announced tomorrow and as always, I plan to watch the webcast and comment extensively via Twitter. I didn’t read quite as many award blogs or predictions this year and only managed to get through two of the Morris finalists (I did better with the YALSA Non-fiction finalists). As a result, I am not going to make firm predictions this year. However, I am going to list a few titles I hope end up with shiny stickers come Monday.
