Good news!

DARE TO DREAM . . . CHANGE THE WORLD has won a Silver Eureka! award from the California Reading Association! I am pleased that the anthology is doing so well, and remain very proud of my poem, "A Place to Share", which is the penultimate poem in the book.

I am EXTRA pleased that my friend Laura Purdie Salas, who wrote the companion poem to mine in DARE TO DREAM, has won a Gold Eureka! Award for her picture book, BookSpeak!: Poems About Books. Congratulations, Laura!

Thanks, Kelly! I feel extra honored to be part of the Eureka two times! Congratulations to all the wonderful poets of DARE TO DREAM. It's part of a 5x5 list I'm presenting next week--my favorite 5 poetry books published so far this year.

Congratulations!

Incidentally, the other day I received my box from Amazon with the three "A Butterfly Is Patient..." etc. series, to give to my godchildren for Christmas. Bought them because of your recommendation here; they are made of awesome. You have become my go-to reference for cool picture books.

Been wondering - any plans to return to the Emma commentary?

Hey! Just found this comment during a rather random sweep for spam - sorry I didn't respond sooner!

SO glad you liked the picture books - I thought they were remarkable, and I'm glad you agree.

Will have to go back and see where we left off with Emma - that sounds like a good idea!

I'd love it if you got back to Emma - but I know you've got a lot else on your plate & are getting the blogging rhythm going again after some time off. Time enough for Emma when things are quiet. That's the nice thing about Jane Austen - she's always there!
