I’m really excited to announce that not one, but two of my books, Dream of Night and That Book Woman, are both finalists for the 2011-2012 MD Black-Eyed Susan Book Award. Yay! (Black-eyed susans happen to be one of my fav flowers!)
Thanks to Catherine Balkin for letting me know about the announcement and for posting it on her wonderful blog: http://balkinbuddies.blogspot.com.
It also happens that Catherine allowed me to guest blog on her site recently, and I wrote about how thrilled I was to receive a fan letter from a class in France. In the letter the students had written an imagined scene (in French) between Cal and the Book Woman. How creative! Below is a picture of the class holding La Dame des Livres.
Merci to the students — and to Catherine — for allowing me to be a guest on her blog.
