Welcome back to the last day of the top ten tweets!
We started off the day waiting in line for the Youth Media Awards.
I’m up and ready to head over to the #alamw20 Youth Media Awards. Yes, I’m early. I like it that way.

It was a HUGE privilege to serve on the ALA Israel Fishman Stonewall Nonfiction Award Committee this past year. Congrats to the winner (Saeed Jones) and 4 honor books–what I really love about this group is that each text asks us to read in a different and important way. #ALAMW20 pic.twitter.com/P9FDrdVYB3

Where we all collectively celebrated the first graphic novel to win the Newbery!(!!!!)
For the few folks who were in meetings though, it was definitely a morning.

After, we headed back to our rooms to nap/long lunch.
A post-ALA solo dimsum lunch. Just resting and reflecting on an INCREDIBLE weekend. Incredible in so many ways. ✨ Sending love to my Caldecott committee (we did the damn thang). #alamw20 pic.twitter.com/OLSS2XFw7J
