Notice what this blog post is not doing

I was thrilled to learn that Jacqueline Woodson won the National Book Award in the category of Literature for Young People for her memoir in verse, Brown Girl Dreaming, which I reviewed here.

Also, since she won a lifetime achievement award and won the night with her speech, here’s my review of Ursula K. LeGuin’s Catwings series, a family favorite.

I am not linking to my review of A Series of Unfortunate Events, because though I did write one once, many years ago, that guy didn’t win anything and isn’t the story and isn’t important. What matters (to me) is that two people I really admire got some recognition. We don’t need to concern ourselves with unfortunate events.

  1. I am so, so, so glad that Jacqueline won. I adored that book and I hope that everyone reads it.

    I am also so, so, so glad that I have no idea what the Snicket reference is about. Being off social media is kind of like having your trusty towel while hitchhiking across the galaxy – keeps me from seeing things that might alarm me.
