More good news for A PLACE TO START A FAMILY. Last night I received notice that the book has been selected a K-3 2019-20 Pennsylvania Young Readers Choice Award Title.
Voting by students will begin in January 2020 and winners will be announced in mid March. Fingers crossed for a win, but just being on the list is high honor. The purpose of the Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Awards Program is to promote reading of quality books by young people in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, to encourage teacher / librarian collaboration in young adult and children’s literature, and to honor authors whose works have been recognized by the students of Pennsylvania.
My gratitude to the librarians of Pennsylvania for selecting my title for the list.
