Bruce and the Road to Courage Wins the 2015 OneBookAZ Award for Children's Books
I am pleased to announce that Bruce and the Road to Courage won the 2015 OneBookAZ award for children's books! The formal announce-ment will be made at the Tucson Festival of Books on March 14th. Along with the other two authors selected (for adult and young-adult books), the Arizona State Library will send me to libraries and schools around Arizona to talk about the book and writing.
The OneBookAZ project brings communities together through literature. Focusing now on eBooks, their writing competition was held during November 2014. OneBookAZ encourages writing, reading, and thoughtful interaction with literature in digital formats. Beginning in April, communities across the state of Arizona are encouraged to read these books (free for the month of April) at the same time and participate in discussions and programs centered around the books.
I feel lucky to have such a great program in our state, and I hope those of you with books forthcoming will consider entering next November.
I'll post more after mid-March, when the announcement of the winners is made formally, but I had to share this much with you now.
