Win the Award. Yippee! Write the Speech? Yikes! Now We Know . . .

Now we know who will be writing Newbery and Caldecott speeches in 2009.

Neil Gaiman has won the Newbery for The Graveyard Book. Beth Krommes has won the Caldecott for The House in the Night by Susan Marie Swanson.


  1. Yay. Neil Gaiman won. For a fantasy. I sure called it, didn't I (see my comment on your 1-18 post). Yippee yahoo!

    Okay, back to work now. Sigh.

  2. Now it will be interesting to hear their speeches!

    Congratulations to both winners.
