2011 Alabama Library Association Author Award

I just have to tell everyone about Irene Latham winning this award. If you've not heard about this book, Leaving Gee's Bend, check it out at www.irenelatham.com
Here is the first part (to me most important part) of the email she received.
Got to go and dance the happy dance for her

Ms. Latham,
As chair of the Alabama Library Association’s Author Awards Committee, it is my pleasure to inform you that Leaving Gee’s Bend has been selected to receive this year’s prize in the Children’s category.
