Stop what you're doing! You need to watch this video!

Holy bagumba! This video of the Newbery, Caldecott, and Coretta Scott King committees making life-changing phone calls totally made my day. I'm REALLY, REALLY happy ALA posted it today. :) 

I asked Kate DiCamillo, Holly Black, Kevin Henkes, Amy Timberlake, and Vince Vawter the same three questions. 

COMING SOON: Kevin's responses

COMING SOON: Holly's responses 


  1. I didn't expect to cry watching this video. I'm not sure what touched my heart more: hearing Ms. DiCamillo's reaction or seeing my friend Mr. Schu filled with joy.

  2. What an amazing process. It gives us all something to dream about. Thanks so much for sharing this.

    1. His extreme close-up is pretty fun.

  4. This got me so totally choked up, John, I can only try to imagine what it must've been like for all of you experiencing that first hands :D :D :D
