Here are the photos from the Arab American Book Awards (link).
Sorry I can’t simply put them up here–you must click through the link to see them. And apologies to those of you who have already seen these–if you follow me on more than one platform, this may be a repeat for you.
Here’s the short version of my interview at the Arab American Book Awards (link).
And here’s the longer one (link):
I am pleased to announce that my book, The Treasure of Maria Mamoun, has been selected as the 2017 winner for Children/Young Adult for the Arab American Book Awards.
The award is put out yearly by the Arab American National Museum, a Smithsonian Affiliate, and “the first and only museum in the United States devoted to Arab American history and culture”. I am greatly honored to be recognized by this esteemed organization, and so excited to travel to Michigan to receive the award this coming October.
Thank you so much!
