A video of my Newbery speech is now up on YouTube. You can see me hop off stage and hand the medal to my mom. (She went for the hug, but I was in a slight daze and accidentally left her hanging). And you can see me get choked up here and there (though I fought nobly).
Personally, I can’t watch it. Too weird. But a few folks have emailed me asking if there was a video version. So, here it is:
Newbery Speech video.
If you prefer text only, you can find that at Horn book here:
