Gone Fishing and The Bluestem Award

I'm happy to share that GONE FISHING has been nominated by the Illinois School Library Media Association for The Bluestem Award 2017: Illinois' Grades 3-5 Readers' Choice Award. It's particularly thrilling to think that Gone Fishing will be read by many students in Illinois since for many years Illinois was my home. I still love the state and the people who live there.


If you click on the Bluestem logo you can see a full list of selected books...it's an excellent list - I've read many of these books and look forward to reading the rest of the list soon. Thank you ISLMA!
