Ada Wolin joined Booklist as an editorial assistant last year surrounded by a kind of hush: a recent Booklist intern and graduate of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC), she’d also already written her first book.
Every weekday we feature a different review on Booklist Online. These reviews are notable for different reasons—they may be starred, or in high demand, or especially relevant to the current issue’s spotlight.
Today’s the day. For the first time in Booklist history, our already robust annual Spotlight on Middle-Grade Reading will coincide with an entire month of downright maniacal levels of middle-grade coverage.
The finalists for the 2019 Hugo Awards were announced this Tuesday, April 2. Who will win the prestigious sf/fantasy-devoted literary award this year? Members of the World Science Fiction Society begin voting later this month. All winners will be recognized during a ceremony at the annual Worldcon on August 18 in Dublin, Ireland.
For 29 years, the Louis Shores Award has recognized excellence in book reviewing, honoring individual reviewers, groups, editors, and/or organizations for their contributions to libraries across the US.
Let the mania begin! Today through Friday, April 12, we’ll be unveiling our Books for Youth staff’s selections of this century’s 50 best middle-grade novels for modern libraries. Each day, two to three titles (appearing in alphabetical order by author last name) will be revealed at both @ALA_Booklist (Twitter) and @Booklist (Facebook). Which books will be announced today?
