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!
