Good Masters Sweet Ladies - Newbery winnerYou know that the winners of the Newbery and Caldecott medal winners always appear on the Today Show after they’ve been announced at ALA Midwinter. Here’s the link to ALA’s edit of the segment. It’s a shame that Newbery winner Laura Amy Schlitz and Caldecott winner Brian Selznick barely get to say a dozen words in the face of the hostess’s nonstop typhoon of yak-yak.

I’ve heard about these Today Show appearances. It’s good to be able to see one, since most of us are working when it airs.
