The Tassy Walden Awards

This Wednesday May 19, 2010, at 7:00 p.m., the Shoreline Arts Alliance will host this year's award ceremonies for the Tassy Walden Awards: New Voices in Children's Literature at the Blackstone Library in Branford Connecticut. It's the 10th anniversary of the awards, and I have been asked to speak for a few minutes about how the awards affected me. (No Castles Here came in as a Tassy finalist in 2002, under the title The Last of the Fairy Godmothers and another manuscript was finalist the year before.)

My congratulations to this year's winners, Karen Jordan (picture book, text only), Diane Warner (illustrated picture book), Pamela Farley (middle grade novel), and Lynda Mullaly Hunt (young adult/teen novel).
