Congratulations to Jack Gantos!

One of my favorite authors, he is the 2012 recipient for the Newbery Award for Dead End in Norvelt

I had the pleasure to meet Jack at the 2011 ALA conference this summer.  He's just as charming in person as he is on page.

If you are interested in other books by Mr. Gantos, I'm also a fan of Hole in my Life (this would be for older readers, high school age) and the Joey Pigza series.
