I just thought I would brag a little bit and let you all know that I got to hang out with Susan Beth Pfeffer (SBP) last week when Life as We Knew It (LAWKI) was awarded with the Garden State Teen Book Award (GSTBA) in the Grades 6-8 category at the annual New Jersey Library Association (NJLA) Conference. As you know, LAWKI is also this year's One Book New Jersey (OBNJ) teen selection.
The GSTBA is great because while the 20 nominations in each category are selected by teen librarians from across the state, the final winners are selected solely by teen readers. The 2010 nominations are up now, and you can vote for your favorite book online through the BCCLS website: www.bccls.org/gstba.
Don't forget! Tonight we'll be online with Ms. SBP herself to discuss LAWKI. Log on at www.bccls.org/OBNJ anytime from 7:30 through 8:30 P.M. All are welcome!
