Judge Werlin presiding

It's official: the National Book Foundation has announced its judges for the 2009 National Book Awards, and Nancy has been tabbed to serve.

She will chair the committee of judges in the Young People's Literature category. Nancy will be working with fellow judges Kathy Appelt, Coe Booth, Carolyn Coman, and Gene Yang to winnow out the best of the best from hundreds of nominees.

They'll determine the finalists in October, and name the winner at the annual dinner in New York City in November. Looks like a busy summer in store...

The new cover for Rules of Survival is brilliant! Ms. Werlin's books always check out frequently at my library, and I will watch with interest to see what she is working on next!
