Ossining Public Library’s OPLbery Club awarded the third annual OPLbery Medal today to Wonder, by R.J. Palacio. OPLbery Honors were awarded to The One and Only Ivan, by Katherine Applegate, and Bliss, by Kathryn Littlewood.
Here is a video of Brandon talking about Wonder:
The members of this “mock” Newbery Club meet monthly to discuss books published during the current year. They began meeting in March of 2012, and overall the members have read more than 40 different books. Over the last few months, they have narrowed the list down to three short lists, finally voting today for the medal and honors books.
