Dewey's and Caldecott

Reblogged from JL's Bibliomania:

It's a bit over a week until Dewey's 24-Hour Readathon on Saturday, APRIL 28, 2018.

 

 

Reader Sign-ups are open:

There are over 700 people signed up already.

 

I've made a tradition of reading the  2018 Caldecott Award winner and some of the Caledcott Honor books as a change of pace between novels during the Spring Deweys.  You can find the winners of the Caldecott, Newbery and other awards from http://www.ala.org/news/press-releases/2018/02/american-library-association-announces-2018-youth-media-award-winners 

 

This is nicely compatible with the low-key Readathon I'm planning, since there is also a visiting scholar at my synagogue and the local Earth-Day celebration competing for my attention.  I don't expect I'll actually read much, since I'd rather spend my time social media-hopping and cheering others on.
