A PLACE FOR PLUTO has made the nominee list for the Maryland Association of School Librarians Black Eyed Susan Award for the 2019-2020 school year! What does this mean? It means that during the upcoming school year, students vote from the nominees on their favorite of the bunch, from picture books through young adult. Awards are given in May 2020.
I’m so excited to be a part of this and blown away at the list of names. It is surreal to see my name on a list of such amazing authors. And I’d like to send a special shout-out to Melanie Demmer, illustrator of A PLACE FOR PLUTO. It would never have made this list without you!
