Starting in March the children of North Carolina will be voting for a favorite book. BLUE is one of 15 nominees in the Junior award category. If you check out that list you’ll see I’ve got some tough competition. Yikes!
But fingers crossed...
If you’re a student and want to vote please ask your school or public librarian for assistance. More information is available at this site. Voting ends on March 31.
The winner will be announced during National Library Week - April 13 -19.
And guess what! Blue is on two more state award lists for the year 2008-2009. I won’t tell you which ones just yet, but here’s a hint. They are both neighbors to the great state of North Carolina!
