Last week, at the American Library Association mid-winter meeting, childrens’ and young adult book honors were announced at the Youth Media Awards — see the previous post “Youth Media Awards 2023!” for YA highlights.
I was wondering how I could do a follow-up, recapping all the Young Adult winners concisely — then I realized I didn’t have to! The amazing Tirzah Price did a fantastic job doing exactly that in this Extra Credit episode of the Hey YA! Podcast from Book Riot — give it a listen!
Thanks so much to Tirzah Price for talking about all of these award-winning books for the Hey YA! Podcast from Book Riot!
