Come learn what titles will be contenders for the Caldecott and Newbery Awards (announced annually in January)!
Robert Zupperoli, Children’s Literature Specialist, will be presenting the Best Books of 2019 for children, middle grade, and young adults on Saturday, November 30 at 2:00 pm in the Fehlow Meeting Room at the Main Library.
Zupperoli’s literary experience includes working with Harper Collins, Random House Children’s Books, and Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers writing curriculum and education guides. He has also reviewed books for School Library Journal. He is a member of the American Library Association. His work with the Association for Library Services to Children makes him well suited to discuss the best new books. Copies of his extensive list will be provided at the program and he will highlight selected titles for the audience.
