New Mystery Award for kids' books
The John Spray Mystery Award will honor excellence in the children's mystery book format and comes with a $5000 cash prize. The first John Spray Mystery Award will be given out in November of this year for a mystery (thriller, crime novel, or 'whodunit') aimed at readers ages 8-16. That means another short-list folks, and I love short-lists. For more info, visit the CCBC.
