Thank you everyone who read, came, discussed, and participated in this
year's Mock Sibert workshop. There were some great books to discuss this
year, but we had a very clear winner.

Mock Sibert winner:
The Right Word: Roget and His Thesaurus by Jen Bryant, illustrated by
Melissa Sweet

We had one honor:
The Family Romanov; Murder, Rebellion, and the Fall of Imperial Russia by
Candace Fleming

Though they didn't come close to these two titles points wise, there were
three books that were very distinguished and were all close in points
together. These were:

Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson
The Port Chicago 50: Disaster, Mutiny, and the Fight for Civil Rights by
Steve Sheinkin
The Girl from the Tar Paper School: Barbara Rose Johns and the Advent of
the Civil Rights Movement by Teri Kanefield

Marc Aronson gave a very lively presentation, and we will be working to get
the video from it posted to the CSD website.

Thanks again,
Danielle Jones
