I was the “mystery guest” at the announcement event last night at Mackin, and got to speak to a room full of enthusiastic teachers and librarians and kids and parents, sign a ton of books, and help celebrate the MN Youth Reading Awards. I’m told that somewhere in the ballpark of 42,000 kids will read the nominated titles in the next year, and vote for their favorites. I am beyond excited to be honored with this nomination, and to be in the company of these amazing titles. Find out about the award and the other nominees here.
If you’re a teacher or librarian who will be reading these titles and voting, and you’d like me to come speak at your school, please check out my school visit information here.Star of the North Award Nominees for 2016-17
