If you are like me, you have Monday, January 27th, marked on your calendar. Why? It's the ALA (American Library Association) Youth Media Awards. Many of the most prestigious awards in children's literature will be announced, including the Caldecott, the Newbery, the Printz, the Sibert, the Geisel, the Coretta Scott King awards and many more.
Want to watch the announcements live? They will be broadcast live on Monday from the ALA Midwinter conference in Philadelphia at 8 am Eastern time. (That's 7 am for us Texans :)

If you get up early, you can check out librarian and blogger Betsy Bird's pre-game coverage of the announcements, starting at 7:30 am Eastern time.
