Tassy Walden Awards Submission Workshop: Thursday, October 14, from 7 to 9 pm at Barnes and Noble, Glastonbury. This is one of four workshops being held this month to assist Connecticut writers and illustrators considering submitting material for the Tassy Walden Award for New Voices in Children's Literature, which is becoming rather a big deal here. This particular workshop will be facilitated by Lynda Mullaly Hunt whose book, One For The Murphys, won the award last year and will be published by Nancy Paulsen Books in 2012. The workshop is free, but they are asking for reservations, which can be made by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
