Awards, Death and Words

First thing first: Susan Marie Swanson(friend of the store and SAP resident) has won the Caldecott prize for her book "The House in the Night" with illustrations done by Beth Krommes. Neil Gaiman won the Newberry and he also has local connections. Go Minnesota.

In the past week W.D. Snodgrass and, more recently, John Updike have passed away. Two major writing souls in contemporary America.

For those interested in late breaking events(and local) we have Cathy Wurzer in the store tonight at 7 p.m. to discuss her new book(and the tv show to follow) on Highway 61.

I'll have more updates along with new releases on 2/1/09.
