E. B. White Awards

One day ago, on May 31, this happened—the E. B. White Awards at Book Expo America in New York.

DU IZ TAK? by Carson Ellis was named the winner and ADA'S VIOLIN was named one of five honor books.

(See the complete list here.) I can still hardly believe I got to share the afternoon with these kidlit superheroes!
