Darfur Book Nominated for Teen Award
What You Wish For, our collection of short stories and poems raising funds for Darfuri refugee camp libraries, has been nominated for the 2013 Isinglass Teen Read Award in New Hampshire! The award, given annually since 2001, is decided based on votes by grade 7 and 8 students in New Hampshire. Prior to voting, New Hampshire libraries encourage students to read the nominated books. How exciting to know that many more young readers will learn about the cause! And what a great way to recognize the wonderful writing of our generous contributing authors. Thank you, New Hampshire librarians and middle school students!
