Newberry Award Announced!

Posted by Laura Losch on January 26, 2009

The 2009 Newberry Award book has been announced (what’s a Newberry Award?).  And the winner this year is. . . .

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

We have this book here at South Hall and I’ll be honest – I’ve been putting off reading it. Why? It sounds scary!!! Several people have checked it out and I’ve recommended it to a few who wanted a good scary read, but I haven’t brought myself to read it. BUT now that it is an award-winning book – I’m going to read it!

Here what’s one Committee member said, “A child named Nobody, an assassin, a graveyard and the dead are a perfect combination in this deliciously creepy tale, which is sometimes humorous, sometimes haunting and sometimes surprising,” Newberry Committee Chair Rose V. Trevino

Stop by and check it out – unless I have it checked out! 🙂
