America's librarians announced their top children's book picks virtually on Monday – awarding the 2021 Newbery and Caldecott medals, among several other honors.

The John Newbery Medal for the most distinguished children's book in 2020 went to When You Trap A Tiger, by Tae Keller. The book's central character is a girl, Lily, whose family moves in with her dying grandmother — and a tiger from Korean folklore shows up looking for something that was stolen.

NPR is planning a project to remember people who have died of the novel coronavirus as they continued to work outside their homes in service to others. Did your loved one work in a service capacity — from providing critical health care to collecting recycling to working checkout at a grocery store?

We'd like to hear a story from you about this person — to help you share a special memory.
