Are you busy with holidays or end-of-the-year activities? It can be an intense time of year, and you may be debating about jumping into the Hub’s Morris/Nonfiction reading challenge but I am here to encourage you to DO IT!
There are two very good reasons to take part by reading as many of the 2016 finalists for the William C. Morris Award for debut YA authors, and/or the 2016 finalists for YALSA’s Award for Excellence in Nonfiction, or both between now and the Youth Media Awards on January 11th:
- You will have a head start on the Hub Reading Challenge that starts in February and that includes PRIZES!
- You get to read some great, informative nonfiction, and some books by hot, new authors.
Here’s what some of our participants are saying on social media — join the discussion by tagging your tweets and instagram photos with #hubchallenge!
Now get started! Or, if you have miraculously already completed the challenge, won’t you please fill out the form at the bottom of this post so we can all be amazed by you?
The rest of us will leave comments talking about which titles we are most looking forward to reading. I’ll start – for the Morris, I’m enjoying The Weight of Feathers.
