I know I am wicked behind on postings and updates, but whirlwind doesn’t begin to describe the last couple of days.
The most important thing right now is to tell you that the National Book Award events have been a blast; I am so honored to have CHAINS in league with the other spectacular books that were named finalists.
More details later, but here is one shot from last night.
Congratulations, Judy Bludell for winning the National Book Award for What I Saw and How I Lied, published by Scholastic. I wish you all could have heard her wonderful acceptance speech – it was top-notch and classy.
I’m off to the airport again, this time to hop a flight to San Antonio, TX for the National Council of Teachers of English Conference. More photos later, including a terrific shot of the attractive gentlemen who escorted me last night!
