ALA Midwinter Awards 2012

None of us got to go to the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Dallas, but we're very excited about the award winners that were announced today!

A huge round of applause goes to John Corey Whaley for Where Things Come Back, which won the Printz Award (in addition to the Morris!) You can tweet him congratulations @corey_whaley.

Jack Gantos won the Newbery with Dead End in Norvelt. Once again, the Newbery was not even on my radar! 

You can find the rest of the Youth Media Awards as well as video coverage of the announcements here at ala.org. The Press Release with a list of all the awards and honors on one page is here

Congratulations to all the winners! Were any of the winners on your list? Comment below or tweet @frootjoos.
