Washington State Book Award winners

Congratulations are most definitely in order for Seattle author Katherine Schlick Noe, whose novel, Something to Hold (Clarion), garnered a Washington State Book Award last week!

One of two Scandiuzzi Children's Book Award winners, Noe's compelling novel about a white girl living on an Oregon Indian reservation shares the honor with Olympia writer and artist Nikki McClure's mouth-watering picture book, To Market, To Market (Abrams), comprise two of the six honors bestowed on Washington residents annually. The awards are sponsored by the Washington Center for the Book and the Seattle Public Library.

Click here for the complete list of winners from the Seattle Times announcement several days ago. It's a proud moment around these parts for children's books. Cheers!

A celebration of the full roster of this year's winners will take place on Wednesday, October 3 at 7pm at Richard Hugo House in Seattle's Capitol Hill. It's free, so it's a great opportunity for schmoozing with these talented writers.
