Reading the best of the best, the official Printz committee announces books they finds outstanding every year at ALA Midwinter. In that same vein, the Mock Printz committee is creating a list of top contenders from every month. At this meeting, the Mock Printz committee will present their chosen best books and open discussion on each book. At the end of the meeting, a vote will be held to determine the Mock Printz honors as well as the finalist.

If you would like to follow along with the committee's reading, please check out the Mock Printz group page! You will find blog posts that list top contenders every month that may be taken into consideration for the Mock Printz.
