Literary Roundup: Winners, Nominees, and Publishing Changes
The American Library Association anounced the youth media award winners yesterday, including the Newbury (The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate) and the Caldecott (This is Not My Hat written and illustrated by Jon Klassen). Congratulations to all the winners and finalists.
The Minnesota Book Award finalists were announced on Saturday. Winners will be announced on April 13 as part of the 25th Annual Minnesota Book Awards Gala.
In late December, All Things Considered covered the topic of changes in publishing. The conclusion? Change is the only constant. As evidence, Barnes and Noble announced a plan yesterday to shrink its stores by a third.
