MARCH receives Coretta Scott King Honor

The American Library Association announced today that our next title, John Lewis’s March: Book One, is one of three Coretta Scott King Book Award’s “Honor Books” for writing. The award is given to African American authors and illustrators of outstanding books for children and young adults. The winner this year is Rita Williams-Garcia’s P.S. Be ElevenAlong with March, Walter Dean Myers’ Darius and Twig and Nikki Grimes’s Words With Wings also received honors.  Myers, Williams-Garcia and Grimes are all highly acclaimed writers, so this nomination not only speaks highly of March, but to the depth of quality work produced by African American authors for young adults.
