Like a Maccabee Honored by Midwest Book Awards

Like a Maccabee was honored with the 2006 Midwest Independent Publishers Association Merit Award for Children/Young Adult Fiction. I was so delighted to hear the news, and even more thrilled to see the certificate. I wasn’t able to be at the awards ceremony, but I was well representd by my publisher Sheyna Galyan, my editor Leslie Martin, and illustrator Anita White. These terrific women helped bring Like a Maccabee to life, and I am thrilled they were able to accept the award!
