Presented annually since 1967, the Boston
Globe-Horn Book Awards are among the most prestigious honors in the field of
children's and young adult literature. The winners and honor books, announced
on June 6, 2011, are selected from three categories: Picture Books, Fiction and
Poetry, and Nonfiction. The event at Simmons College includes the awards
ceremony with speeches from the honorees, followed by an autographing session
and a celebratory reception.

Back by popular demand, our second annual Horn Book at Simmons
colloquium will bring together librarians, educators and children's literature
professionals to examine the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award winners. This
day-long event includes talks, panel discussions and small group sessions to
explore how books for children and teens interpret the world for young readers
as well as new strategies for bringing young people and books together.
