2009 Carolyn W Field Award

In April, I posted the nominees for the 2009 the Carolyn W. Field Award and the committee has finally chosen a winner:

The Boy Who Dared by Susan Campbell-Bartoletti

If you haven't had a chance to read this one, run to the children's department (and you better own it!) and check it out! I had the chance to meet Susan at ALSC several years ago and then again at a children's literature conference - she's so approachable and full of great wisdom and I enjoyed a peak into her writing process. Good stuff! I have this one on hold to read as soon as I can!

Thanks to Susan Wilson (CLAV) and the committee for all their hard work!
