Mock Printz: January 12th!

Happy New Year, HVLA members!

We’ve been teasing it for a while and now HVLA & Someday My Printz Will Come are happy to officially invite you to attend this year’s live and in-person Mock Printz on Saturday, January 12, 2013.

WHO: HVLA & Someday My Printz Will Come
WHAT: Mock Printz Debate and Discussion
WHERE: LREI – Little Red School House and Elisabeth Irwin High School
40 Charlton Street, New York, NY 10014
WHEN: Saturday, January 12, 2013
12:30 pm – 1:00 pm Lunch
1:00 pm – 4:00 pm Debate & Discussion

 As voted by YOU, here’s the short list of titles that we’ll be discussing:

The Fault in Our Stars, John Green
Code Name Verity, Elizabeth Wein
The Diviners, Libba Bray
The Raven Boys, Maggie Stiefvater
The Brides of Rollrock Island, Margo Lanagan
Every Day, David Levithan
Ask the Passengers, A.S. King
Railsea, China Miéville
Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, Benjamin Alire Sáenz
The Drowned Cities, Paolo Bacigalupi

Before our main debate, we’ll vote down the list to 7 titles so we can have a thorough and intense discussion about each book. We’ll be using the same criteria as the Real Printz Committee. You can review those policies and procedures at ALA’s website for the Printz Award.

Remember, this event is open to all HVLA members and associates, so feel free to pass this invite along to your non-HVLA colleagues and friends; we only ask that participants come prepared for in-depth discussion of our short-listed titles!

R.S.V.P. by end of day Wednesday January 9th. We look forward to seeing you!
