I’m excited to announce that Dream of Night has been selected to be on Vermont’s 2011-12 Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award Master List.
Here’s the info about the award:
First given in 1957, the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Children’s Book Award has honored quality literature for children for 50 years now. Each spring, a committee of eight carefully selects 30 books to comprise the DCF Master List. After reading at least 5 books from the list, students then vote for their favorite titles the following spring. The winning author is invited to visit Vermont to speak with children about the experience of writing such fine literature for such fine people.
Here is a link to the website that shows previous winners, and the current Master List:
And here’s a link to my friend and colleague, Catherine Balkin’s, wonderful Balkin Buddies website and blog about books and writers. She gives a lovely shout out to me and to Elizabeth Cody Kimmel. Thanks a bunch, Catherine!!!
