Awards news for Groundwood Books from the American Library Association

Last weekend and early this week marked the American Library Association Midwinter Conference and the announcement of the ALA Youth Media Awards and ALA Notable Books. We were happy enough to be in Dallas for the conference (hello, warm weather!) but even more thrilled to see Groundwood Books recognized. Congratulations to all the authors, illustrators, and publishers involved.
