Hi Greta,

Can you share with Oregon youth librarians?

The Children’s Literature Lecture Award Committee is seeking suggestions for our 2023 honoree. The lecturer may be an author, critic, librarian, historian, or teacher of children’s literature, of any country, who shall prepare a paper considered to be a significant contribution to the field of children’s literature. The lecture will be given in April or May of 2023 at a site to be chosen next year.

ALSC members are welcome to send suggestions to the committee for consideration. Please send your proposed lecturer(s), with supporting rationale for each recommendation. (If you are not an ALA/ALSC member and still want to nominate someone, email me off-list: springlibrarian at gmail.com<mailto:springlibrarian at gmail.com>.)

The nomination form<https://airtable.com/shrG4ftIES7uLpHg8> is available online and the deadline for submissions is July 31.

Recent past lecturers include Dr. Rudine Sims Bishop, Neil Gaiman, Dr. Debbie Reese, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Jacqueline Woodson. The complete list of past lecturers<http://www.ala.org/alsc/awardsgrants/profawards/chll/past-lectures> is on the ALSC website.

The 2023 lecturer will be announced at the 2022 ALA LibLearnX next January in San Antonio. For more details about the lecture, please visit the Children’s Literature Lecture Award site<http://www.ala.org/alsc/awardsgrants/profawards/chll/about>.
