Congratulations, Helen Frost!

EXCITING NEWS about local author Helen Frost whose book, Diamond Willow, is on the final reading list for this year's ACPL Mock Newbery.

Farrar, Straus and Giroux has just announced that author Helen Frost has been awarded a National Endowment for the Arts Poetry Fellowship for her work on The Braid. This literature fellowship recognizes writers of poetry, encouraging the production of new work by affording these writers the time and means to write.

You can see the entire list of 2009 Literary Fellowships (Poetry) here.

Congratulations, Helen! (Thanks to SLJ's Fuse #8 for the info!)
