Today was the reception for the 75th annual list of the New York Public Library Books for the Teen Age. This list is actually a lovely large glossy sort of magazine. It is sold to libraries across the country, who use it as a reference and a buying guide. It is given away free to teenagers, of course!
Not only did Firebirds make it, so did Nina Kiriki Hoffman's A Stir of Bones, which Viking published in Fall 2003. A very nice surprise!
It was weird to wear an author (anthologist?) badge with stars on it.
