Hi, dear 7-Imp’ers. I’m starin’ down some manuscript edits this week. How are you all? Once this round of manuscript edits is done, I hope to post a bit more on a weekly basis here in the land of 7-Imp.
But for now …
Tomorrow morning over at Kirkus, I give a brief run-down of the BolognaRagazzi Awards, since the 2012 winners were announced just this week. But I also step back to describe what in the hubba-what the Bologna Children’s Book Fair is all about (as well as the four categories in the Ragazzi Awards), since I realize that to even the most hard-core children’s lit aficionado in this country, it might be a bit of a mystery.
For those interested in seeing the 2012 winners, they are as follows (note three American titles make Mentions this year in two different categories!) —
- Fiction winner and two Mentions
- Nonfiction winner and three Mentions
- New Horizons winner and two Mentions
- Opera Prima winner and three Mentions
That Kirkus column will be here tomorrow.
