Jeanne with RGVA 2011 Best Autism book Award

June 26th, 2011

I’ve been watching lynda.com to learn how to add images to a post and figured out the mechanics well enough to get the image on this post but have to go back and watch it again to figure out how to shape the text so it doesn’t think it’s stuck to the picture. Caitlin Doherty took pictures of me holding the “medal.” I think of it as my Oscar. The actual medal emblems will be attached to the front covers of the books. They look terrific.

 

Contest

June 15th, 2011

I got an e-mail from Mary Kay Betz, the Executive Director of the Illinois Autism Society saying my book was in the top five with the winner to be announced at the award dinner in Chicago. I signed up for the dinner, got plane tickets and a room at the Hyatt Regency O-hare, the hotel hosting the Award Banquet. (A very comfortable place with a Starbucks on the ground floor.)
