Morris Award Finalist Interview Series

The 5 finalists for YALSA's 2015 William C. Morris Debut YA Award were announced in early December, and the winner will be announced at the Youth Media Awards at the ALA Midwinter meeting in Chicago on February 2nd. As is tradition, every year, previous winners of the award interview the current finalists, which is a wonderful way to learn more about the nominated titles and their wonderful authors.
