Random House Children's Books Spring 2022 Preview

Join us for a preview of Spring 2022! Hear from Emma Otheguy, Lisa lee, and Olgbemisola Rhuday Perkovitch, as they discuss their upcoming middle grade books, and then hear from the RHCB School & Library Marketing team as they talk about some fabulous books coming this season!

 

They are classroom and library favorites. Once the call is made, the announcement revealed, and the sticker placed, these books become perennial reads for young readers throughout the years. Celebrate 100 years of the Newbery with four Newbery award-winning authors: Tae Keller, Rebecca Stead, Veera Hiranandani, and Matt de la Peña as they discuss their Newbery titles, reminisce about the call, and how receiving a Newbery has enhanced and furthered the reach of their books and connected them with readers. Have your class or library join to ask questions of the authors about their Newbery and classroom favorite books! Join Booklist, Penguin Young Readers, and Random House Children’s Books for this one-hour long FREE webinar to discuss the Newbery on Wednesday January 12th at 2 PM CT, moderated by Kirby McCurtis. Director of Location Services, Multnomah County Library and ALSC Past President.
