National Book Award Finalists for Young People

on October 16, 2008

The National Book Award Finalists for Young People have been announced.

I’m thrilled to see Kathi Appelt’s, The Underneath, on the list! I first heard Kathi speak at a Seattle SCBWI Conference. Later, she became my fourth semester Vermont College MFA Adviser–meaning she helped me work on that all important creative thesis–my young adult novel, Girl on a Thin Wire.

I had the privilage of working with Kathi again when she was my Highlights Foundation Chautaqua mentor. Kathi has always impressed me as being both fabulous teacher and a fabulous writer! Congratulation Kathi!
