Award-winning Nonfiction

It is so gratifying to work in a business where there are so many exemplary writers and such an abundance of awesome books. Congratulations to all the award winners and honor books that were announced this past week: to Hester Bass for winning the Orbis Pictus for The Secret World of Walter Anderson; to Tanya Lee Stone for winning the Sibert Award for Almost Astronauts; and Deborah Heiligman for YALSA's Award for Excellence in NF for one of my favorite books - Charles and Emma, just to name a few. This year there were dozens of excellent books to choose from and these awards just help to publicize what the rest of us already know - the art of telling true stories is alive and well and good reading!
