Each year, since 2015, the REFORMA Oregon Round Table (RORT) for the Oregon Library Association hosts the Mock Pura Belpré Award. This is a great opportunity not only for librarians and library staff who are working with Latino and/or Spanish speaking children, but also for all children’s librarians. The focus of the Mock Awards is on knowledge building by including titles which are open to deliberation regarding the Pura Belpré Awards criteria. This helps us to raise awareness of the importance of more quality children’s literature written and/or illustrated by Latino authors.
Please bring all the copies of the contender titles (see http://reformaoregon.weebly.com/2019-mock-pura-belpreacute.html ) to make sure that we have enough books for discussion.
