The 2012 Newbery Medal Winner is Dead End in Norvelt

This week I will be posting all of the American Library Association winners and honors books.  The first post in this series is the 2012 Newbery Medal Winner. 

The Newbery Medal is named after John Newbery, an eighteenth century English bookseller.  The Newbery Medal, first awarded in 1922, encourages original children's books and innovation in the area of Children's literature.

The 2012 Newbery Medal Winner is Dead End in Norvelt written by Jack Gantos.



There were two 2012 Newbery Honors books, Breaking Stalin's Nose written and illustrated by Eugene Yelchin and Inside Out and Back Again written by Thanhha Lai.




There are many Children's Book Awards given throughout the year in the United States.  Most are given through the first half of the year. 

The 2012 Newbery Medal Winner was originally published on Books My Children Read blog.
