And the winners are…

For those of you who were not there or are not aware, today was Reading Roundup, which is a wonderful opportunity for youth librarians from Maine to connect, share, and collaborate.  This is my favorite type of conference and I would like to talk more about certain parts of the day in detail (which I shall do at a later date).  For now, I would like to share the winners of the 2013 Lupine Awards and the 2013 Katahdin Award.  For more information about both of these awards, please visit this site.

And the winners are….

Picture Book Honor

Brave Girl:  Clara and the Shirtwaist Makers’ Strike of 1909 by Michelle Markel and illustrated by Melissa Sweet

Picture Book Winner:

The Secret Pool by Kimberly Ridley and illustrated by Rebekah Raye

Juvenile/Young Adult Honor:

The Water Castle by Megan Frazer Blakemore

Juvenile/Young Adult Winner:

Out of Nowhere by Maria Padian

The Katahdin Award winner:

Anne Sibley O’Brien


Pictures from the awards ceremony will be coming soon!  Thank you to the RRU committee for all your hard work, Anita Silvey for the interesting stories behind the children’s stories, and the Lupine Committee for being such a wonderful group.  Have you read any of this year’s Lupine winners?  I would love to read your thoughts in the comments.

    This newsletter is so nicely done. We don’t do this at Fairfield. We do some Facebook, but I don’t know how many followers we have. Also our Teen Advisory Board never shows up. And I didn’t know about these awards so thank you! Cynthia
