Re: [middle_school_lit] Digest Number 906
I was also at the Printz. The other Australian was Margo Lanagan for her book "Tender Morsels."
If you like hearing the winners and honorees speak like they did at the CSK breakfast (I was there too, did you see me?), come to the Pura Belpre Celebration. It's free, (unlike the other ALA award ceremonies), and you get to hear all of the winners and honorees give their heartfelt thanks.
Yuyi Morales (illustrator winner for "Just in case") gave her speech then showed a hysterical home made video with Senor Calavera (the skeleton & main character from her book) trying to find his way to ALA to come to the Celebration for his award. I'm hoping someone puts it on YouTube.
Other winners/honorees who spoke included Margarita Engle, Francisco Jiminez, Lucia Gonzalez, Lulu Delacre, Amy Cordova and Rudy Gutierrez. All authors/illustrators are also available afterwards for photos, and book signings. Hope to see everyone there next year!
