I am a CYBILS judge!


I am really excited to announce that I've been chosen (again) as a judge for this year's CYBILS Awards! What are Cybils, you say? They aim 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 a ton in January and early February to whittle down the books for graphic novels. Last year I was a round 2 judge for junior high/high school non-fiction so I am excited to try out another category. I am really looking forward to seeing what books make it to the short list!


Nominating Books

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 15, 2018
  • Fill in the form that will be on the CYBILS Awards site
  • You may only nominate one book per category
Happy reading!
