The SCBWI announced the winners of the 2016 Crystal Kite Member Choice Awards for fifteen regional divisions:
I always love to see which books are chosen from each region of SCBWI for this award. This year, the book chosen from my region (the Mid South) is: “Secret Files World War II, by Stephanie Bearce. I had the opportunity to meet Stephanie earlier this year at a SCBWI workshop. She talked to us about the joys of writing non-fiction for children.
A few of the chosen books.
