I Got the Rhythm, illustrated by Frank Morrison and written by Connie Schofield-Morrison, has been included on the 2015 list “Books All Young Georgians Should Read” by the Georgia Center for the Book. The list includes works by authors and illustrators living in Georgia. Books were nominated throughout the year by the writers, educators, and librarians who comprise the Georgia Center for the Book Advisory Council.
“For the Georgia Center for the Book, the ‘Books All Georgians Should Read’ and the ‘Books All Young Georgians Should Read’ lists are a wonderful way to honor the extraordinary talent we have right here in Georgia. They give us the opportunity to inform readers across our state about the diverse body of work being produced that celebrates Georgia’s literary heritage so well,” said Joe Davich, Executive Director of the Georgia Center for the Book Advisory Council, in a press release.
Congrats to Frank and Connie, residents of Atlanta, GA, on this special honor!
There will be a public awards ceremony held on Thursday, August 13 at the Decatur Library in Decatur, Georgia. More details can be found on the Georgia Center for the Book website.
