Laura Amy Schlitz is Big in China!

Today is Laura Amy Schlitz Day at Park! We take a day every January to acknowledge our Lower School librarian’s spectacular accomplishments in the world of children’s literature. Most recently, Laura’s 2013 Newbery Honor winning book, Splendors and Glooms, has won the China Times Book Review Award for Young People’s Literature. Laura, for the uninitiated, is also the 2008 Newbery Medal winner for Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village.

Congratulations and thank you, Laura!
