News: More State Award Master Lists and a Signing at Square Books, Jr.

It's been so long since I've blogged with any kind of regularity. I have a lot of catching up to do! My "Texas, Part 2" post never happened... I have piles of great artwork from readers that I want to share... and I have more trips coming up. But for today, I'll just share a couple of things.

First, I've learned that Savvy has been chosen for three more award master lists for the 2010-2011 school year:

Pennsylvania Young Readers Choice Awards
Rebecca Caudill Young Readers Book Award Master List, Illinois
South Carolina Children’s Book Awards


Second, I will be signing books at Square Books, Jr. in Oxford, Mississippi, on Friday, March 5th, at 3pm. Watt Key, author of the award-winning book Alabama Moon will be signing as well!

I'm honored to be invited to Oxford, Mississippi next week for the Oxford Conference for the Book. I get the amazing opportunity to speak to over 500 5th graders at the Gertrude Castellow Ford Center for the Performing Arts at Ole Miss. All of the kids have received their own copy of Savvy, and I'm excited to get the chance to be there with them next Friday.

It will be my first visit to Mississippi!

CCIRA 2010

A quick note, in case anyone's attending CCIRA this week in Denver. I'll be at the conference on Friday, signing books from 10:30-12:00. Then speaking from 2:45-3:45.

Come say 'Hi' if you're attending the conference!

If you're not coming to CCIRA in Denver but plan on attending IRA in Chicago in April, I'll be there too! More details to come...
