But I’d still like to win.
I’m a finalist for a Washington State Book Award. Specifically, I’m one of three finalists for the Scandiuzzi Children’s Book Award, middle grade reader category.
Will I win? Come to the awards ceremony at the Seattle Public Library, main branch, at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 10. It’s open to the public.
(One of the other nominees is Ken Jennings, of “a bazillion consecutive wins on Jeopardy” fame. It would be fun to be able to brag about beating him at something. That doesn’t seem to happen often.)
