Honors and Awards for Marin Younker, Andy Musser, & Ben Clanton!

We are behind on our celebrating! We forgot to share a few member triumphs. Without further adieu, behold the awesomeness.

​Yay, Marin!

The Virginia Library Association awarded a 2017 Jefferson Cup honor to Bleed, Blister, Puke, and Purge: The Dirty Secrets Behind Early American Medicine by J. Marin Younker. The winners were Cat Winters' The Steep and Thorny Way (Young Adult Readers) and I Dissent: Ruth Bader Ginsburg Makes Her Mark by Debbie Levy (Young Readers). 

Since 1983, the award recognizes books for youth and teens in the areas of American biography, history, or historical fiction with the intent to promote America's past, as well as quality writing.

More about the award and 2017 titles here.

Way to go, Andy!

Andy Musser won a Portfolio Honor at the 46th Annual SCBWI Summer Conference this month!

Congratulations, Ben!

And a mere couple days ago, Ben Clanton won an Eisner for Best Publication for Early Readers for Narwhal: Unicorn of the Sea! 

We love good news! WE WANT EVEN MORE. We love to celebrate our community. Share it with us at wwa@scbwi.org and we'll share it with the group.
