Connecticut Kid Book Happenings

The Connecticut Book Awards were announced this afternoon. I was out in the state forest, so I don't know who won, but I can tell you who was nominated for children's writing and illustration.

For Writing:

Fly, Monarch! Fly! by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace

The Freedom Business by Marilyn Nelson

Waiting for Normal by Leslie Connor

For Illustration:

Baseball Hour, Bill Thomson, illustrator

The Freedom Business, Deborah Dancy, illustrator

The Wolves Are Back, Wendell Minor, illustrator

And while I'm on the subject of Wendell Minor, he has an exhibit at The New Britain Museum of Fine Arts. It will be running through December 13.
