Congratulations to this year’s winners of the Lupine Award! I blogged about the 2012 winners on this blog, never imagining that I would one day have the opportunity to announce them as Lupine Chair. A huge thank you to The Lupine Committee, the Reading Round-Up committee, and the Maine Library Association. A special thanks to Laurel Parker for being a Super Librarian and my role model.
And now, here are the winners:
The Lupine Picture Book Honor Award goes to Matt Tavares for Growing Up Pedro.
The Lupine Picture Book Award goes to Jamie Hogan and Eva Murray for Island Birthday.
The Lupine Juvenile/YA Honor Award goes to Phillip Hoose for The Boys Who Challenged Hitler.
The Lupine Juvenile/YA Award goes to Jennifer Richard Jacobson for Paper Things.
The Katahdin Award, given to recognize life-time achievement, goes to Cathryn Falwell.
