Just remembered that in the late 90s, I, and Walter Minkel, two members of the Association for Library Services to Children (a division of ALA,) were responsible for the design, publishing, and updating of the Newbery and Caldecott Medals’ official web pages. It was such fun getting all the secret information hours before the press release time, gathering all the winning books to scan the cover images, and posting the information for the eagerly awaiting public! Thank goodness the ALSC staff took over the updating of these sites now so I don’t have to wake up super early to work on the pages — but I DO miss that special perk of knowing something before most everyone else does! Now, I am quite content to be just sitting in the crowd and holding my breath to hear the announcements and screaming for books I love when their titles and authors are pronounced.
