One of our leaders, Valerie Nicholson, and one of Wake County Public Libraries’ book selectors, Cheryl Teal (a former leader of our sister Mock Newbery club) met author Andrew Smith last night at the ALA Printz Award Reception in San Francisco. Woohoo! Our club loved Smith’s book Grasshopper Jungle. It was one of our Mock Printz Honor books, as well as an official Printz Honor books in 2015.
