Hey y’all! 

I’m so excited to announce that Miss Quinces has been shortlisted for Reading the West book awards for the Young Readers Category! 

Voting is open to anyone, so please cast your vote today~ 

More about the award: Reading the West was conceived to celebrate the diversity, courage, tenacity, expertise, and indie spirit of the bookstores in the Mountains & Plains Independent Booksellers Association. Our goal is to bring bookstores, books, and readers together, to promote the best of our regional authors and stories, and to feature the passionate recommendations of our booksellers.

TLA - Texas Library Association (Austin, TX)

Hey Austin, TX! I’m so excited to be a part of TLA this year especially as a featured guest for The Spirit of Texas (SPOT) Reading Program! SPOT helps encourage a greater understanding of what it means to be a Texan, and to develop an appreciation for the literary works of and about Texas and Texans. 

And it’s a great recommended reading list developed by public and school librarians from the Young Adult Round Table (YART). The purpose of the list is to encourage youths in grades 6-12 to explore a variety of current, quality books from Texas authors and illustrators, develop critical reading skills, and to encourage greater interaction between Texas authors and illustrators, Texas librarians, and Texas youth.
