CCL Director Lisa Von Drasek is fresh off the plane from ALA and (although a little jet-lagged) we were able to cajole a few photos of this year’s event from her to share with you. Enjoy!
Children’s Book Committee Executive Board member Jenny Brown celebrating the Irma Black Honor for I Want My Hat Back with Jon Klassen. We congratulate him on his latest win for Extra Yarn, a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award Winner!
Lisa scored a signed copy of 24 Hour Comics edited by Neil Gaiman when she renewed her membership in the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. The Children’s Book Committee’s own Josette Frank once testified in defense of comics before congress.
Caroline Ward and Melissa Sweet celebrating the Sibert Medal win for Balloons Over Broadway. Sweet was thrilled to finally meet Lisa and looks forward to a visit with our student in the Fall. The Cook Prize was especially meaningful to her as children were the final judges.
