The Association for Library Service to Children selected two of my books for its 2017 Notables list.
Freedom in Congo Square, illustrated by Gregory Christie
You Can Fly: The Tuskegee Airmen, illustrated by Jeffery Boston Weatheford
This news capped a wonderful ALA Midwinter for me during which Freedom in Congo Square won the Caldecott Honor and Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor. Congratulations to both illustrators on what has been a spectacular awards season. I look forward to our future collaborations.
