Alex Awards Presentation at ALA

On Sunday, July 12, 2009, I was honored to attend the ALA national conference in Chicago. Three other Alex Award winners were there: Stephen Bloom, author of the Oxford Project (pictured with me), Hilary Jordan, author of Mudbound, and Toby Barlow, author of Sharp Teeth. One of of my favorite books of the year also won this award, although he wasn't able to attend: David Benioff, author of City of Thieves. It was really wonderful to be recognized by this group of hard-working, book-loving librarians, as it was meeting the other authors.
