It is almost August, which means--the call for Cybils Judges will be here in 3-4 weeks!  Now is the time to think about whether this Fall is the time to through yourself into the beautiful immersion of reading and evaluating a ton of middle grade spec. fic. books!  I'm the organizer for Middle Grade Speculative Fiction; here's a post I wrote in 2015 with more info (note--since it was 2015, ignore the links....)
