National Book Awards!

On the one hand, I totally called it for the first time in ages.
On the other, I didn't even get the date right and thought it wasn't happening until tomorrow.

Turns out the National Book Awards were announced this evening, and in the Young People's Literature category the winner was Philip Hoose for Claudette Colvin: Twice Toward Justice. I'd put up a pic and a link, but if you scroll down one post it's already there.  Because it was my pick for the win!  I wasn't wrong this year!!  Take that! And it was the only one of the finalists that really inspired me to annoy my friends and coworkers talking about it as I read, so I even feel ok about that now.
