Cool News: The Last Panther is a Colorado Book Award Finalist and a Local to Local Pick

I just got two bits of good news that I wanted to share with you

 

The first bitThe Last Panther was chosen to be a finalist for the 2018 Colorado Book Awards!

The book’s in some fine company, with other amazing books by Newbery Medal winning authors like Avi. Many thanks to the 40 readers and judges who selected this book!

The second bit: Bookbar, an amazing independent bookstore in Denver, just selected The Last Panther for their new Local to Local book donation program. They’re giving over 150 copies of this book to kids at local schools to help encourage summer reading. This is an incredible program. Please show your support to Bookbar by buying some books from them (that’s what book stores love). It’s an amazing community service they’re doing.

Thank you Bookbar!
