Okay, see all those spots around the table set with teacups? We saved those seats for all of you! See, we're celebrating something just a teensy weensy bit exciting and that is the fact that Ms. Tanita has been nominated for a NAACP Image Award for her 2009 novel Mare's War. So please join me in my Mad Hat and Tanita in her bunny ears and a rather disgruntled-looking Alice (with apologies to John Tenniel) and raise your cup with us! Oh, and do go check out this link to the awards--click on "Literature" and scroll all the way down to the teen/youth category. It made me all fidgety with excitement. Tanita, you go, girl!!
