2016 WSU Mock Newbery


The 2nd WSU Mock Newbery was held on January 23, 2016, at the Charles & Renate Frydman Educational Resource Center at Wright State University. Eighteen participants from public libraries, school libraries, teachers, juvenile detention center, and retirees read, prepared and discussed the 10 books on our list, plus this year's Newbery winner, Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Pena, using CCBC Book Discussion Guidelines.
