If you’re in Boston, chances are you are probably not reading this post, you lucky people! But for all of us #alaleftbehind here are some digital options. Just because we’re not physically there doesn’t mean we need to be entirely absent. So what links do you want to keep open in your tabs?
Here, of course! We’ll be live blogging all the fun.
But maybe you need some pre-game action? SLJ is on it. Scintillating commentary has been promised! It starts at 6:30 AM EST and I, for one, am very impressed that one could be up/dressed/coherent at that hour, much less promising something scintillating, but we know Betsy Bird will deliver.
And the fun isn’t over until the post-game action is over, no? Again, SLJ has your back. Post awards seems a much more humane hour for analysis, reactions, and wrap-up.
For the middle — you know, the real, live Youth Media Awards?! We may not be in the room to sense the delicious, palpable excitement. We may not be there in person as ALSC and YALSA Presidents announce which books medal and which titles committees have recognized, but we do have another digital option: the live feed Monday morning at 8 AM EST.
I am pretty pumped for this.
