The Newbery is a beloved picture book award. On its centennial, author and illustrator Grace Lin created a memorial cover for The Hornbook's special issue. It is titled "100 Years of the Newbery Award posters" and features a young, Asian American reader and award-winning books with handpainted book covers. They are available for purchase online and through the Eric Carle museum. 100% of the artist's proceeds will be donated to Everylibrary.org. I'll be picking up a few for sure!
