The American Library Association has announced its 2006 literary award winners. I’m especially happy at this YA award:
Michael L. Printz Award for excellence in literature written for young adults “Looking for Alaska,” written by John Green, is the 2006 Printz Award winner. Four Printz Honor Books also were named: “Black Juice” by Margo Lanagan, published by EOS, an imprint of HarperCollins; etc. etc.
Yay for Alaska and Black Juice! (See my take on Alaska in the books sidebar to the left.)
And now the posting frenzy will stop. But fair warning, I’ll be back later weighing in on Ander Monson’s Other Electricities as I was unable to get my s together to participate in the boys’ discussion over the weekend. (See also Ed’s first LBC podcast.)
