The start of 2018 is as good a time as any to post about awards from 2017! Thérèse Makes a Tapestry won a Bronze PubWest Book Design Award in the Children’s/Young Adult Book, Illustrated category, as well as a 2017 Outstanding Achievement award from the Wisconsin Library Association. Hip hip hooray!
I am delighted to learn that Thérèse Makes a Tapestry is included in CCBC Choices 2016. I spent many hours in the Cooperative Children’s Book Center (CCBC) during my library school days, poring over copies of CCBC Choices, and flopped on the floor reading piles of children’s books. It is truly an honor to have my own book included in such a thoughtfully curated collection!
