By the way, I just got back from Washington D.C., where Return to Sender got awarded the Américas Award by the Consortium for Latin American Studies Programs (CLASP). The ceremony took place at the Library of Congress. I felt so very small and amazed as I entered the HUGE building.

But up in the Mumford Room, the atmosphere was warm and full of cariño. Here is a picture of me all alone when I was about to enter the Library of Congress, and then one taken with the two winners of the picture book award, writer, Carmen Tafolla, and her illustrator, Magaly Morales.
