Dorothy Canfield Fisher Children’s Book Award

City of OrphansLast week I learned that my most recent­ly pub­lished book, City of Orphans, was nom­i­nat­ed for the Ver­mont children’s choice award, which they call the Ver­mont Gold­en Dome Book Award. It’s a big thing for writ­ers who are nom­i­nat­ed for these awards. It means that many more libraries, school and pub­lic, will put the book on their shelves. Many more kids will read the book. These awards are unique because the kids pick the win­ner. To win is a spe­cial hon­or, deeply sat­is­fy­ing. These chil­dren’s choice awards are a reminder of what the whole enter­prise of children’s books is all about—the kids.
