On a recent visit to see my grandkids, I learned that my oldest granddaughter was reading The Hunger Games series. She explained that the school librarian had given her the 3-book boxed set. After a little prompting from her mom, I learned that the set was an award for being the only student in her school building to have read all of the Mark Twain Award nominee books. Of course, this former teacher—turned—librarian grandmother was thrilled to hear that news. She was excited to have been able to vote for her favorite.
I’m assuming that you love to read, and because you love to read, you like to hear about new and upcoming books. Am I right to assume this? Well, if you’re anything like me, you also like to hear about the up and coming award books like Mark Twain, Gateway, and Truman. Yet again this year, we have a wonderful selection of books to choose from.
