After a loooong train ride we arrived in DC for the Américas Award ceremony! Most of my photos came out a bit blurry, so here are the best of them:
It was lovely to meet fellow authors and illustrators Margarita, Sean and Jennifer. Many family members and friends attended as well, including my wonderful Mom! My husband was awesome as travel guide - taking charge while I tried to not be nervous about my speech.
The organizers did a lovely job, VERY special thanks to everyone involved in making this a lovely trip.
When I saw all the honor books set up on a table at the Library of Congress, I was awed. So many beautiful books! I'm very, very honored to be part of this.
