It gives me great pleasure to announce that SCBWI AZ member Larry Dane Brimner has been awarded the 2012 Crystal Kite Member Choice Award in the Southwest Regional Division for his book BLACK AND WHITE: THE CONFRONTATION BETWEEN REVEREND FRED L. SHUTTLESWORTH AND EUGENE “BULL” CONNOR (Boyds Mills Press).
Congratulations to Larry for writing such an important book and kudos for receiving this recognition by his peers.

The Crystal Kite Awards are given by the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators each year to recognize great books from 15 regional SCBWI divisions around the world. Along with the SCBWI Golden Kite Awards, the Crystal Kite Awards are chosen by other children’s book writers and illustrators, making them the only peer-given awards in publishing for young readers. Each member of SCBWI is allowed to vote for their favorite book from a nominated author in their region that was published in the previous calendar year.
