We are compiling a list of some of this year’s titles which we think are particularly good and which might be considered as contenders for the 2015 Newbery Medal — the prestigious award given annually to the author of the most distinguished book written for children in the preceding year by an American author.
Each year we have an “in-person” discussion of possible contenders — you can register for that right here — and this year we are again pinning possible titles to be discussed on our Library’s Mock Newbery board. Because this Board includes titles from last year, you’ll want to make sure you are looking at the titles marked <2014 pin> if you are interested in reading books we think might be considered for the 2015 Newbery Award.
Here are some of the titles we’ve pinned so far:
