I’m excited to have agreed to serve on the USBBY Board. I have always admired the history and work of this organization which is the United States section of IBBY, the International Board on Books for Young People. Just recently, Betsy Bird of Fuse#8 fame, interviewed the President-elect of USBBY,John Mason, Scholastic’s Director of Library and Educational Marketing. It’s a great interview with lots of information including how members can be involved with various book committees like the Hans Christian Andersen Awards.
