90-Second Newbery Film Festival

Blogger & YA fiction author James Kennedy (check out The Order of Odd-Fish in our catalog)has inaugurated the 90-Second Newbery Film Festival contest on his blog! Watch the video below to get a taste of what's to come.

"A Wrinkle In Time" In 90 Seconds from James Kennedy on Vimeo.

"That’s a lot of Newbery winners. Maybe too many? You can’t read all 90 books! But you do have 90 seconds to spare, right? So here’s our contest, open to anyone: make a video that compresses the story of a Newbery award-winning book into 90 seconds or less." ~from the blog

Also check for Newbery Awards in the library catalog.

Hey, not only a blogger! I'm a YA novelist! People! Please! I know I'm obscure, but must I endure indignity every single day of my life?

Do check out my YA fantasy, The Order of Odd-Fish (Random House Delacorte, 2008). It might even be in your library, God willing.

It most certainly is in our catalog. Our apologies! Clearly a case of blog in haste, repent in leisure.
