Congratulations to my librarian friend Sandra Morrow! She is the recipient of the Distinguished Alumnus Citation from Abilene Christian University. Morrow, who is a librarian at Brentwood Christian School in Austin, Texas, was given this award for her role in establishing church libraries throughout the world. In addition to helping charter the National Christian Librarian's Association, Sandra also founded the Children's Crown Awards in 1992. My books, Summer Sun Risin' (2005-2006 Nominee List) and Black All Around (2005-2006 Nominee List) are included on those list!
Sandra once invited me to speak to a group of librarians at a mid-winter meeting, which resulted in my receiving many requests for paid school visits.
