The Washington Library Media Association's annual Sasquatch Award committee is looking for books. Nominate good solid middle grade fiction AND stellar non-fiction for grades 4-6 (not too teen!), variety of genres and boy/girl type books, copyright 2012 OR 2013. If folks have books to nominate, send them via email to Erin Ostrander at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year's Sasquatch Award winner happens to be our very own Royce Buckingham, for his book The Dead Boys. Congratulations, Royce! Read all about it here.
From Erin Ostrander: They don't have to be WA-based authors or have WA interest, but I've got a soft spot for our wonderful local talent from working with local authors and illustrators for 14 years––I was super-thrilled to have Royce's book, The DeadBoys; Guinea Dog by Patrick Jennings; and Clete Barrett Smith's Aliens on Vacation all on the list this past year!
