Congrats to Gene Yang!

For the long delay, I apologize, but I wanted to share the news that one of the teachers who presented a workshop for us this summer, Gene Yang, has been selected as a finalist for the National Book Award.

Hooray!

About the Book

This graphic novel portrays the life of a young Chinese-American boy who moves from San Francisco’s Chinatown to the suburbs, where he is one of two Asian children in the school.

You can check out an interview with Gene in Publisher’s Weekly and see him again at NCTE in a few short week.

Congrats, Gene! To think, we knew you way back when… 🙂
