I greatly enjoyed this funny, frank Nerdy Book Club post by teacher William Polking about the woes and joys of serving on the Cybils YA Fiction first-round panel: The Trouble With Cybils. I served on the same panel two years ago and experienced the same combination of overwhelming reading load and exhilarating discussion with a really crack team of fellow panelists.

  1. I will never again apply to be a Cybils panelist. I look forward to applying again next year and hope I am selected.

    Oh, the schizophrenia. I’ve been there since my first year. What a fun piece.
