Tony's site is particularly welcome at this time of year, when many California schools and students are learning about the program, considering participating, or already actively engaged. The deadline for voting is April 1, 2009.
Here is some background:
- The program encourages recreational reading of popular fiction.
- Students nominate, read, and vote on their favorite books.
- This is a California book award, sponsored by four California Associations: California School Library Association, California Library Association, California Teachers of English, and California Reading Association.
