The 40th Coretta Scott King Award Ceremony was more than I hoped it would be. I shared the stage with some of my favorite artists and authors and was uplifted by librarians from across the country. I was especially excited to see a lot of familiar faces from the Brooklyn Public Library and the New York Public Library. New York represent! Thank you to everyone who made this possible. Here are a few pictures from the ceremony.
Once more pics are sent to me, I will post away. Now, off to bed, I’m wiped out. I’m looking forward to doing this again sometime!
*For those who received postcards fom me at the conference, please excuse two things. First, the date of my award should read 2009, not 2008, and I used the wrong cover of Bird. I should have also included the EJK medal.
