Vaunda Micheaux Nelson and R. Gregory Christie accepting the 2012 BGHB Fiction Award

I loved what Vaun said about throat-clearing:
Sometimes you have to do an awful lot of writing to figure out exactly what it is you have to say.
And I loved illustrator R. Gregory Christie's comment:
"I feel it's really important that our young people realize that the clock doesn't start ticking when they were born, and there's a whole history of experiences and knowledge that can help us better understand the issues we go through today."

  1. If you're at YALSA in St. Louis on 11/3/12 check out the 1:30 panel on Saturday with Vaunda, Kersten Hamilton, Betsy James, Carolyn Meyer, and me.
