Mazza Museum Holds Watch Party for Big Awards
The biggest awards in picture books were shown on the big screen on Jan. 28 in the Mazza Museum. Volunteers were invited to join the staff to watch the Youth Media Awards given by the American Library Association. Coffee, and some Caldecott quizzing made the morning a fun time for all. Of course, we kept track of our Mazza artist friends who were recognized for their books. Sophie Blackall, Brian Lies, Paul O. Zelinski, Scott Magoon, Dan Santat, Yuyi Morales, Grace Lin, Ian Schoenherr, Jarrett Krosoczka and Sergio Ruzzier have all been to Mazza or been visited by the Mazza Study Tour and R. Gregory Christie will join the ranks this summer. Although none of our Mock Caldecott picks won, we were delighted to be together to hear the history-making announcement.
