Saturday I went to the Texas Book Festival in Austin. It was a beautiful day filled with books and authors. The most exciting session was the announcement of the 2010-2011 Texas Bluebonnet Awards Master List. Being a member of the TBA Selection Committee has been an honor and very rewarding, so this was very exciting! Jon Scieszka and Mac Barnett were the masters of ceremony and they made us laugh! They were all pumped up to announce the list! Now, it will be up to the children of Texas to decide their favorite.
