The Quills Award

The Quills Awards are a new national book award that honors excellence in writing and publishing, including consumers in the voting process. Designed to inspire reading while promoting literacy, the Quills will honor winners in more than 15 different categories,
including Book of the Year, Debut Author Of The Year, and Lifetime Achievement.

They have a children's picture book category, a children's chapter book catergory and a teen category. I believe that we read books from these categories this year and it is a award based on people's choice, so you can go to the website - www.quillsvote.com and vote! The awards will be on tv on October 22nd (maybe on NBC??) I thought it would be cool to watch authors win these awards like the Emmy's or something.

PS - Thanks Cassie for letting us know about this!
