Literary Lights for Children

On 9/26 the Associates of the Boston Public Library (BPL) presented the twelfth annual "Literary Lights for Children" awards ceremony and tea party. The award winners Neil Gaiman, Karen Hesse, Grace Lin, and Jerry Spinelli were honored for their extraordinary contributions to children's literature. Four students selected from Boston area schools presented the awards to each of the honored authors. Immediately following the event were book sales and signings with the authors. "Literary Lights for Children" seeks to raise awareness of Children's literature, promote literacy, honor children's authors, and raise money for the Library's children's services and collections.
