The Newbery-Caldecott dinner (the event at which this year's winners of the prestigious children's book awards are honored) took place this week and you won't find a better piece of reporting on that than what appears in the 7/2 edition of "Shelf Awareness," the e-mail newsletter that goes out daily to independent bookstores. Their website is still under construction so I can't send you there but I can paste a copy for you below. It's a lovely tribute both to the winners (Brian Selznick and Laura Amy Schlitz) but in addition it also honors the magic of the story. Take a look and enjoy.
