There are 7 books I have to read or reread, between now and mid February when we announce the winner.This is a virtual committee and I am excited to be a part of it. On February 1st, I begin my work on the 2016 William C. Morris Debut Award committee. It is going to be an exciting year!Here’s what I need to read for the CYBILS Nonfiction for Young Adults category. You can see the finalists in the other categories HERE.
