Over a year ago, OverDrive launched Perspectives on Reading, a quarterly online magazine that focuses on trends in the reading world. In that time, they have published stories about using video games as a literacy tool and how to read like a writer and taken readers into the world of Denver’s Tattered Cover Book Store and behind the scenes at Penguin Random House with Skip Dye.
The Wisconsin Author contest closed at the end of May. We had a total of 76 submissions (56 adult and 20 YA titles)! Submissions are currently being reviewed and the winner will be announced in early fall. The winner will receive $1000 cash prize donated by BiblioBoard and will be invited to the WLA Awards and Honors Banquet at the annual WLA Conference in October.
