Board members will be bringing breakfast treats to the meeting on Friday, November 21.
We will also "pass the hat" for donations.
If you can't attend, remember you can always donate via the Paypal link! (Although we can't send you breakfast treats in return!)
The updated starred-titles list is posted. At the end of the 2014 list is a list for the books to be published in 2015. These books will not be eligible to nominate until after the 2015 list has been chosen and posted on the website. But readers can keep notes and be ready to nominate for the 2016 list as soon as that occurs.

Imagined characters from his future work swirl in dreamy flows of muted greens and blues through Hendrix’s complex graphite, pen-and-ink, and acrylic illustrations.
Poems about three very different women born in 1867 who defied the rules of their time—Laura Ingalls Wilder, Madame C. J. Walker, and Marie Curie—explore their special and sometimes difficult relationships with their daughters—Rose Wilder Lane, A’Lelia Walker, and Irène Joliot-Curie.
Poetic language and magical illustrations combine in this fictional biography that captures the wonder, passion, and pain of Pablo Neruda’s early life. Printed in Neruda’s signature green ink, the beautifully crafted book includes representative poems, author notes, and sources.
