The John Newbery Medal is awarded annually by the Association for Library Service to Children to the author of the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. The award-winning book, as well as any honor books, are chosen by a committee of 15 librarians from around the country. We are excited to announce that Yapha Mason, our Lower School Librarian, was recently appointed to serve on the 2015 Newbery Award Committee. She will begin serving on this prestigious committee in January, and conclude with the award announcement in January 2015. Along the way she will be required to read and discuss the hundreds of eligible children’s books published in 2014.
Yapha will be forming a Newbery Book Club for interested 4th, 5th, and 6th Graders to join her on this journey and learn how the medal is awarded. They will be encouraged to read as many of the eligible books as they can. We are thrilled and honored to have Brentwood School involved in this esteemed book award.
