I am really excited to announce that I've been chosen as a judge for this year's Cybils Awards! What are Cybils, you say? They aims to "recognize the children’s and young adult authors and illustrators whose books combine the highest literary merit and popular appeal."
I am a round two judge, which means I'll be reading like crazy in January and early February to whittle down the books for junior high/senior high nonfiction books. I am really looking forward to seeing what books make it to the short lists!
If you have books that you would like to see nominated for this year's awards, here's the scoop:
- Nominations are open October 1 to 5, 2017
- Fill in the form that will be on the Cybils Awards site
- You may only nominate one book per category
