And How Did You Spend Your Memorial Day Weekend?

BostonGlobeHornBookMe?  I spent it in Vermont. The rolling green hills.  The bears and red squirrels and little tiny insects that think your left nostril is a house and home.  The lovely company, particularly when you’re deciding the 2016 Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winners.

Yup.  Alongside fellow committee members Roxanne Feldman and Joanna Long (she of the magnificent Vermont home) we put our heads together and came up with some stellar winners.

What’s that you say?  You’d like to know who those winners might be?  Nothing doing, sweet stuff.  You’re going to have to watch the live feed this coming Thursday at 11 a.m. EST like the rest of the world.  I’ll give you one hint though: I like these books.  I mean I really, really like them.

Stay tuned, faithful readers.  The live feed video is here.

  1. LIVE video? So exciting, Betsy! I’ll be watching’! :-)

  2. Is it live or is it Memorex? (It’s Memorex.) Are you under forty or do you get that reference?

    • Elizabeth Bird says:

      Oh, I get it, but it’s a memory that had to be unearthed under a pile of Fruit Roll-Up and Frankenberry jingles.

  3. That sounds idyllic and inspiring!
