Soirée at the Boston Public Library

Seems like we're talking a lot about awards on the Fire Escape lately, doesn't it? Well, I'm not complaining. Today I'll be at the Boston Public Library where the Boston Authors Club is hosting the 11th Annual Boston Authors Club Award Luncheon. The 2008 Young Reader Award Recipients are:
Brian Selznick, THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET

Elizabeth Alexander and Marilynn Nelson, MISS CRANDALL’S SCHOOL FOR YOUNG LADIES AND LITTLE MISSES OF COLOR

Mark Peter Hughes, LEMONADE MOUTH
Highly recommended titles include:
Loree Griffin Burns, TRACKING TRASH

Ralph Fletcher, THE ONE O’CLOCK CHOP 

Jack Gantos, I AM NOT JOEY PIGZA

Peter Johnson, WHAT HAPPENED

Mitali Perkins, RICKSHAW GIRL (yippee!)

Jane Yolen and Robert J. Harris, THE ROGUES
Here's a complete list of the Boston Author Club 2008 Awards as well as details on today's award luncheon. The library itself, founded in 1848 and hosting over 2.2 million patrons a year, is a definite destination when you come to Boston.

What a great batch of authors to spend a lunch with. And an award too? Wow.
