Last night I attended the Oregon Book Awards Ceremony, as a finalist for the Eloise Jarvis McGraw Award for Children’s Literature. What a night! So much fun to celebrate friends old and new. Huge congratulations to my critique partner Dane Liu for her win for FRIENDS ARE FRIENDS FOREVER! It was an honor to be a finalist alongside her book and other finalists Zoey Abbott, Cathy Camper, and Trudy Ludwig. Thanks to Literary Arts for putting on this amazing event!
