Last night's to-do list was about ten miles long, but I tossed it in a garbage can in order to relive one of the most amazing evenings of my life: the 2013 Newbery-Caldecott-Wilder Banquet. I hope you'll put your to-do list aside and spend time with Jon Klassen, Katherine Applegate, and Katherine Paterson. You won't regret it. I promise. Happy watching!
