2020 Printzbery Results

Our annual Printzbery event was held Saturday, January 11, 2020. Twelve librarians gathered to discuss the merits of various MG and YA books published in 2019. In addition to awarding a Newbery, a Printz, and honors for each, our mock committee also awards a Printzbery to the most excellent book for 12-14 year olds (the overlapping ages for Newbery and Printz).

Without further ado, our winners are:

Newbery

Winner: Eventown by Corey Ann Haydu; Honors: New Kid by Jerry Craft, Stargazing by Jen Wang

Printz

Winner: Frankly in Love by David Yoon; Honors: Birthday by Meredith Russo, Lovely War by Julie Berry, Laura Dean Keeps Breaking Up With Me by Mariko Tamaki

Printzbery

Winner: New Kid by Jerry Craft

How do our picks match with your favorites and predictions? Are the real committees thinking what we’re thinking? We’ll find out on January 27!
