Another Perspective On Our Day

Oakland "Heavy Medal" Mock Newbery participant, Emily Jiang, was inspired to get back to blogging after our discussion on Saturday.  If you’re interested in reading more about how the day went, from the standpoint of a participant, do check out her blog post here.  I know she plans on writing more – reviews of the books we discussed for a start, so make sure you check back with her blog again later.

I’ve also been holding on to other Mock Newbery results as I see them, and I will soon make a post showing what other Mock Newbery groups have selected.  Please leave me a comment if you hosted a Mock Newbery or know the results of one hosted by someone else.  Thanks!
