Dec 1 Update: The Best Books are posted.
SLJ’s book review editors will take to Twitter today, Tuesday, November 29 from 4-5pm EST for an informal chat about Best Books. The hashtag is #SLJBB11
Editors Trev Jones, Luann Toth, Daryl Grabarek, Chelsey Philpot, Marlene Charnizon, and Henrietta Thornton will discuss:
- This year’s trends (fewer dead protagonists, dystopian’s still strong, and what’s up with picture books)
- Their process (how they decided the final 60+—and all got out alive)
- Personal favorites
- Your questions (Ask the editors. Anything, ask them)
Throughout the conversation we’ll reveal a good bit of our Best Books list.
Here’s the cover by Maurice Sendak, per our annual tradition, based on the theme of stars:
