Good News for Wolfsnail

Wolfsnail:  A Backyard Predator won the Mississippi Library Association’s Children’s Book Award. I am thrilled to have won this award and I thank the MLA’s 2010 Authors Awards Committee for the recognition. I will accept the award during the MLA’s annual conference in Vicksburg, which is October 20-22.

The committee voted in February to add the children’s award to its list, which has traditionally included fiction and nonfiction for adults. A list of previous award winners can be found here.

In other news, my friends at Boyds Mills Press shared today that a professor in the College of Education at the University of Illinois is using Wolfsnail in a course on using children’s literature to teach.

When I posted photographs from our recent trip to Oregon, I forgot to include this one, which is actually one of my favorites. Somehow it didn’t get flagged. I hope you enjoy the two semi-circles in the composition as much as we do.

    Hello Mrs. Campbell!

    Congratulations on receiving the award. You definitely deserve it. I truly love the picture. I do hope we will be able to find funding so that you can work with our 2nd graders on their Ask4More Arts unit. This photograph can be the frontloading, inquiry piece. Again, congratulations.
