Happy Valentine’s Day.
Do you know what that means?
The CYBILS are announcing their AWARDS today. And as a person who sat on the Poetry Award Committee this year, we had our work cut out for us. The seven finalists were top notched. A mix of books for the younger set, books for YA, anthologies and novels in verse. Fun subjects like soccer and how to introduce a hedge hog in a proper way. there were serious topics such as sexual abuse, child neglect, and immigration.
Thank you to my cohorts as we discussed which book should be our winner.
Wander, Ponder, Write
And now, drum roll please….the 2019 CYBILS POETRY AWARD
