Freeman Book Award Winners at McDonald Library

From Ms. Pat, the McDonald Librarian:

There is a new book award in town, the Freeman Book Award. From their web site: “The awards recognize quality books for children and young adults that contribute meaningfully to an understanding of East and Southeast Asia.”

I have had the pleasure of serving on this award committee this year (and also in its first year, last year) “judging” books that have been submitted in the Children’s Category. It has been an interesting personal and professional experience. It has helped me become acquainted with some wonderful books and a few not so wonderful books. One of the benefits to the McDonald Library is that the 20 or so reviewed books will become part of our library collection. Take a few minutes to click on the link above for a full list of the award books for 2016 and 2017. If you want to check any of these books out, please let me know.  “The Crane Girl” is the Gold Medal winner in the children’s category.
