MOCKINGBIRD is a National Book Award Finalist

I send my heartfelt thanks to the National Book Foundation for naming MOCKINGBIRD as a 2010 finalist for the National Book Award.  I’m so grateful for the National Book Foundation, whose wonderful  mission it is to “celebrate the best of American literature, to expand its audience, and to enhance the cultural value of good writing in America,” and thankful that the honor is given by writers (peers) to other writers.  What an honor.
