ALA | Margaret A. Edwards Award

An author still under-appreciated in the UK was amongst those honoured alongside the Newbery and Caldecott medal winners:

Lanky Lizards! Francesca Lia Block is the slinkster-cool recipient of the 2005 Margaret A. Edwards Award honoring her outstanding contributions to young adult readers. The award was announced Monday, January 17, during the American Library Association (ALA) Midwinter Meeting in Boston. The Edwards Award recognizes Block's ground-breaking Weetzie Bat books, which enable teens to understand the world in which they live and their relationships with others and society.
