Kidlit Drink Night – Talking Caldecotts and Newberys
A show of hands. Who is remaining in New York while our fellow compatriots high-tail it Denver to have oodles of ALA-centric fun? I see. Well due to the economic crunch, I think it’s safe to say that more than a few of us will be huddling down here in NYC. That means that we should have a great big awesome party to celebrate the winners of the ALA Youth Media Awards (a.k.a. the Newbery, Caldecott, etc.). We will watch the live feed in the morning, and then that evening we can dish about what won and what didn’t do so well. Sound like a plan? Here are the details.
When: Monday, January 26th at 6:30 p.m.
How Do You Pronounce That?: I think the "g" is silent, and then you add on a gutteral German sound at the back of your throat as you say "staad".
Fair Enough. So Where is it Again?: 43 West 26th Street between Broadway and 6th Avenue.
Do We Have a Room?: We do. And it’s called "The Cabin". I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.
Hope to see you there!
