San Diego Mock Newbery

Some of you may have noticed a new change in my bio statement recently, but if not then I’ll take this opportunity to mention that I took a new job at the beginning of October as the County Schools Librarian at the San Diego County Office of Education.  Which means that I will, unfortunately, not be able to participate in the Oakland Mock Newbery.

Therefore, I would like to invite anyone from the San Diego area (or beyond) to participate in a San Diego Mock Newbery on Saturday, January 11th.  We will use the same shortlist.  More details will be forthcoming, but if you are interested in attending then please send me an e-mail at
