Call for NBGS Committee Members
The Notable Books for a Global Society Committee was started in 1995 as a way to identify outstanding tradebooks that promote understanding across lines of culture, race, sexual orientation, values, and ethnicity. Each year, a committee of 10 people read the book submissions and select 25 outstanding books for the award. We seek 3 new members for a 3-year term on the committee. In order to be a member of this committee, you must be a member of the Children’s Literature Special Interest Group and be willing to attend the International Literacy Association annual meeting and the National Council of Teachers of English annual meeting each year you are on the committee. You must also be willing to read and discuss over 300 books for K-12 that are typically sent to committee members each year as submissions for the award. Please contact Suzii Parsons (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Fran Wilson (email@example.com) if you are interested in applying to be a new member of the committee. The deadline for applications is February 22, 2019.
