It debuted at Annual this year and now even if you didn’t get to attend Conference you can still purchase a copy of the 2012 Michael Printz Award calendar which celebrates twelve years of award winners and honor books (and more). The calendar is available in the ALA Online Store and all proceeds will go to the Friends of YALSA.
For each month in 2012 the calendar includes:
- A high-quality image and information about one of the 12 winning Prinz titles
- Birthdays of award winning YA authors who have been honored by one or more YALSA awards, including the Printz and Edwards Awards. For example, did you know that Printz Honor Book Winner E Lockhart’s birthday is on September 13 (just around the corner) and Printz Winner Angela Johnson’s birthday just passed by on June 18? If you had the calendar you would.
- Highlights of monthly and weekly events. On the calendar you’ll discover events such as National Student Day which takes place on June 20th in 2012.
- Information about YALSA events and history. For example, the calendar will help to remind you that the YALSA Midwinter Booklist and Awards Trivia Night is scheduled for January 20, 2012 and that YALSA turns 55 in 2012.
Check out the calendar online and buy yourself one. Or, why not buy yourself one, and also give it as a gift to all those YA loving people you know.
