In October, I was informed that Hanging Off Jefferson's Nose: Growing Up On Mount Rushmore was awarded the Silver Medal Honor Eureka Award, given by the California Reading Association for outstanding nonfiction in Children's literature. What an honor.
Then I was informed in November that my book is also a nominee for the 2014 Grand Canyon Readers Award for Nonfiction in Children's Books. School kids in Arizona will now have to read the book and vote for their favorite out of ten nonfiction nominees. I think I already won by having those kids read my book!
