Abstract

Using the John Newbery Medal as a case study, this essay examines the prizing of children's literature and its cultural discontents, focusing on the rise of "edubrow" culture and on the gradual shift away from traditional rhetorics of distinction and toward more pluralistic understandings of literary and cultural merit.
