The 2010 Michael L. Printz Award Committee is charged to select from the previous year’s publications the best young adult book (“best” being defined solely in terms of literary merit). Now is your chance to meet the hard working folks who want to spend the next year reading, and rereading, and rereading, and taking extensive notes on hundreds of titles competing for this prestigious award.
Running on the spring ballot for the 2010 Printz Committee are:
Priscille Dando, Teri Lesesne, Jack Martin, Richie Partington, Sheila Schofer, Ann Theis, Cheryl Karp Ward, and Carlie Webber.
1. Please tell us a little about yourself.
2. Tell us how you define “literary quality.”
3. The books will be coming at you fast and furious — what’s your reading plan for the year?
4. How do you promote the Printz winners in your library?
Thanks, and have fun introducing yourselves to the membership!
