A family announcement. My wife, the beautiful and talented K*therine Appleg*te, has won two major prizes for Home of the Brave.
The Josette Frank Award from Bank Street College of Education.
And the Golden Kite Award, which is given by the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
These are two very prestigious awards. How did she win? By being an extraordinarily talented writer.
Both awards involve acceptance speeches. She's looking into beta blockers.
