The awarding of the American Library Association Youth Media Awards at the ALA Midwinter meeting are often referred to as the "Oscars of kid lit," and this year Harvard Book Store will celebrate them in style.

Get as close to the excitement as you can without actually being in the room where it happens. Meet fellow book lovers who feel just as excited as you do about children's literature. Celebrate with coffee, munchkin doughnuts, and mimosas (for 21+ attendees). Watch the live stream of the announcements and join in every surprise, every gasp, every cheer. Compete for the glory of the most correct award predictions. Take advantage of a 20% discount off any book that receives an award or honor that day, including pre-paid special orders of the inevitable books that went under the radar.

$10 tickets are limited, go on sale January 12th, and are available online only.

The 20% off promotion does not compound the discount on already discounted items.

Tickets for this event will be available online only.

Tickets are non-refundable and non-returnable.
