Penguin Random House is celebrating a century of the Newbery Medal!
Since 1922, lovers of children’s literature — children and adults alike — anxiously await the announcement of the Newbery Medal for the “most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.” This anniversary commemorates not only a century of captivating books, it celebrates the longevity and evolution of the award. The world has changed in the last 100 years, and with it, the Newbery Medal seeks to recognize stories that represent and respect all youth. Join the celebration by sharing your favorite books, authors, trivia, stories, memories, and more with us on social media using #Newbery100.
