Two namelos novels have recently been nominated for a pair of venerable children’s book awards: The Summer of Hammers and Angels, by Shannon Wiersbitzsky, is on Kansas’ William Allen White master list for 2013-14 and Waiting to Forget, by Sheila Kelly Welch, is on South Carolina’s Junior Book Award master list for the same period. School children in each state will read and discuss all the nominated books, then vote for their favorites. South Carolina announces its winner in March 2014, and Missouri’s result come in a month later. It’s a honor to be nominated, of course, but we’ll be rooting for the home team(s) to win.
