A very nice surprise came via email yesterday. My bilingual picture book, Alicia's Fruity Drinks/Las aguas frescas de Alicia, is a finalist for the 2013 Writer's League of Texas Book Awards Competition. The winner will be announced in September. The other nominees in the picture book category are Jeanette Larson, Hummingbirds:Facts and Folklore from the Americas, Don Tate, It Jes’ Happened: When Bill Taylor Started to Draw, and Kelly Bennett, One Day I Went Rambling. Congratulations to all and best of luck!
