Yesterday I attended the Arizona Library Association's (AZLA) annual conference to accept The Judy Goddard/Libraries Ltd. Award for The Life of Glass! It was such a huge honor that they chose my book this year, and the award is quite possibly the most gorgeous award I've ever seen.
Here I am accepting the award, and giving my acceptance speech!
And here I am doing a panel with the other state award winners, Amanda Noll, Jody Feldman, Me, and Jennifer Ward. That's Mary our excellent moderator on the end :)
Here we are signing books after our panel!
And here is a picture of my AMAZING LOOKING award!!
I'm so grateful to all the amazing librarians in Arizona (and everywhere!) who always support my books. It was a great day, and I felt like a rockstar! I have my award sitting on my desk, where I definitely think it will bring me good luck!!
