Kudos to Jon Klassen for getting the medal AND and an honor book award!
Were some of you there in the room for the announcement? Did the rest of you watch online or follow the twitter feed? Robin is in Seattle and will probably call me sometime today. I was here at work listening in but now I need to head home. (Still ailing, but the announcement is like a shot of adrenaline!)
We’ll post an official response to the announcement later, but for now I wanted to spread the word and give you all a place to discuss this.
