ALA Awards and Ron's Best Book

Last week while Hamline students were at the on-campus residency in St. Paul, the ALA Awards were announced at the annual Mid-Winter conference. The exciting news (for fresh young writers, that is) is that both the Newbery and the Caldecott awards went to a first-time published author and illustrator. This is unusual, and should be hopeful to all you starting out! In case you have not yet seen the complete list go here.

AND to top it all off Hamline’s own Ron Koertge made the ALA Fiction Best Book list for his outstanding novel, Shakespeare Makes the Playoffs. Yippeeee, Ron!
