      Yes! Let me find the links, and I’ll post them. One of the librarians in my district made a powerpoint (or Prezi…I forget) with all the trailers she found. With her blessing, I will post it. 🙂

    Hi Amika,
    Do you by chance have a 2016-2017 Award Nominee image you can share? I see you had one for 2015 – 2016. I’d like to make a page of many images so I can put them on the books.
    Thank you,
    Rhonda Howard

        Hello Rhonda!
        You know, I didn’t make one last year because I thought “why bother?”…but it seems I should have! I have time today and will post one on the page. Thank you for asking and reading the blog!
