Join Our Celebratory Mad Tea Party!


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!!

Still doing the dance of joy for Tanita - so wonderful, and so well-deserved!

E Wein said...

ahhhhh! this is so cool. If you had not already said "you go girl!" I would have said it for you.

I hope your reentry is not too cold!

I'm bringing the treacle-well to our happy tea party! Congrats, Tanita! :) :)

This is adorable - I'm all about the Mad Hatter rabbit ears.

Also, I'm all about the believing "six impossible things before breakfast." The chances of me actually WINNING are about that impossible, so I'm honestly just as happy simply to be nominated -- thank you for celebrating with me! I'm still... a little... confused by how it all happened. But I'm adjusting!

I'm SO excited about attending this party. I brought cupcakes! *sips magic writer tea*

Congratulations, Tanita, bearer of hip bunny ears and all-around brilliant writer! :)

Mary Lee said...

Jama beat me to the cupcakes, so I'll bring one of my famous cheesecakes!

WOO-HOO for my "kinda-cousin"!!

Ethel Rohan said...

I'm pulling up a chair. Congratulations, Tanita. I'm thrilled for you! Yahoo.

Thanks, everyone, for coming by. If this were a real-life party it would kick major ass!

Shelf Elf said...

Hooray Tanita! I raise my cup of tea to you!

Moira Donohue said...

Jackie Parker said...

Congrats, T!

Mitali Perkins said...

PARTY! WOO-HOO! Tanita, you are a STAR! So proud of you. My son asked me to ask you to get Will Smith's autograph. Actually, he begged me to beg you. Will Smith's friends are probably asking for TANITA DAVIS' autographs! Turn up the music and let's dance, people!

MotherReader said...

This is so very awesome. Congratulations!!!

lgburns said...

Hearty congratulations, Tanita!

All best,
Loree Griffin Burns

tanita davis said...

Mitali -- tell your son if I **EVER** see Will Smith, I may have to be revived. So, the autograph might be secondary to the CPR. But, I'm all over it, as soon I get off the floor.

tanita davis said...

Everyone: THANK YOU! Someday, may we all party together.

ahundredrevisions said...

Woohoo! Congratulations - I loved Mare's War and I'm glad to see it getting some well-deserved recognition!

Christine M said...

Tanita! I'm late to the party - but what wonderful news! Congratulations! I'm in the middle of reading Mare's War right now - and it totally deserves any awards people can think to give it!

Vivian said...

Congrats!

Sheila Ruth said...

Congratulations, Tanita! That's so terrifically exciting! Will you be partying with the other nominees, like Denzel Washington and Morgan Freeman?

Sherri L. Smith said...

Wow! What fantastic news. I'm running over to Tanita's blog to give her a virtual high five. Congratulations! The recognition is well-deserved.

adrienne said...

Again, such exciting news, and richly deserved. Yay, Tanita!

And how much do I love that tea party pic? A lot.

Doret said...

Tanita, you may not meet Will Smith or any celebs but they may read your book.

A celeb interview in the near future.

Reporter -"So what are you reading right now"

Celeb "Well, I recently attended the NAACP awards and discovered this wonderful novel called Mare's War."

That would be so cool. Much Congrats and thanks for the tea.
