The Big Winners!

I am thrilled that today The American Library Association (ALA) today announced the top books, audiobooks and video for children and young adults including the Caldecott, King, Newbery and Printz awards at its Midwinter Meeting in Boston and among them were books I recommended on Good Morning Ct last year! And some are friends of mine!
I am also thrilled that my friend Libba Bray won the Printz for Going Bovine, a story I was privileged to hear in its earliest stages! What a wonderful day!
