Cheers to the winners!

Today the ALA awards were announced, which always feels like the kid lit world's Oscars. A ton of deserving books won some great awards and I can't wait to catch up with the ones I haven't already read, but I want to give a shout out to the VCFA winners of the bunch:

Jandy Nelson, alumna, winner of the Printz and a Stonewall honor for I'll Give You the Sun

Kekla Magoon, alumna and faculty, who received a Coretta Scott King honor for How It Went Down

Jacqueline Woodson, former faculty, who received a Newbery Honor for Brown Girl Dreaming

Julie Berry, alumna, whose audio version of The Scandalous Sisterhood of Prickwillow Place received an Odyssey honor

Check out all of the winners here!
