Inspiration a click away - Listen to the Caldecott, Newbery, and Legacy Award Acceptance Speeches from the ALA's Association of Library Service to Children


This is so cool - definitely one to bookmark. 

Didn't get to the banquet to hear the winner's speeches - or just want to relive an amazing moment? Check out this page listing the winners of the ALA's Caldecott Medal, Newbery Medal, and Legacy Award with links to download the audio from many of their acceptance speeches.

From 2019, you can hear:

Sophie Blackall accept the Caldecott Medal for Hello Lighthouse

Meg Medina accept the Newbery Medal for Merci Suárez Changes Gears

and Christopher Myers, on behalf of his father Walter Dean Myers winning the Children’s Literature Legacy Award

And there's so much more. Explore all the recordings here. Enjoy!

Illustrate and Write On,
