On Monday on this blog, we talked about narrowing our list of books to be discussed at our Library’s Mock Newbery Discussion and Election. We posted a link to a survey to allow YOU to vote for the books which YOU thought should be discussed. In addition to the 54 titles on our survey, we also offered the option of “Write-In Votes.”
I’m pleased to say there have already been eleven write-ins. They are:
- After Eli by Rebecca Rupp
- Child of the Mountains by Marilyn Sue Shank
- Dreamsleeves by Coleen Murtagh Paratore
- The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen
- In a Glass Grimmly by Adam Gidwitz
- Jepp, Who Defied the Stars by Katherine Marsh
- Laugh with the Moon by Shana Burg
- One for the Murphys by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
- Precious Bones by Mika Ashley-Hollinger
- Unfortunate Son by Constance Leeds
- Ungifted by Gordon Korman
Unfortunately, we cannot add these titles to the survey without losing all the current votes. Please feel free to write in these titles or others which you feel should be included in our discussion AND which meet the Newbery criteria as you complete your survey.
And remember to register for our annual Mock Newbery discussion and election where we will be discussing the 15 titles selected! The discussion will be held on Saturday, January 12, from 2:00 to 3:30pm at the Main Library in downtown Fort Wayne.
