I had a great time at the openings of both the Groton Library and New Art Center exhibits the other week. The Groton show is up for one more week and the New Art show will be around for another week or so. If you can't make either show, here are a few pics for ya -
I have just received word that I have been honored with the state of Wisconsin's "Golden Archer Award"! Receiving a state award is an incredible feeling, because the awards are voted on by the students themselves. And in the case of The Golden Archer Award, the students also nominate the books in the first place! This year, Punk Farm took the top prize in the primary division.
To all of the teachers and librarians in Wisconsin, everyone on the Golden Archer committee and especially to all of the kids who voted for Punk Farm, a hearty and rocking "THANK YOU, WISCONSIN!!!!!"
Hello readers! I often get inquiries from schools if they can write letters. While I get some mail through my publisher's and agent's addresses, I wanted to announce that you can send cool letters or pictures to my brand new PO Box. You can send letters to:
Jarrett J. Krosoczka PO Box 60155 Florence, MA 01062
I will do my best to write back to classrooms when I can. A Self-Addressed-Stamped-Envelope would help a lot, too.
I have so many great pictures and letters from previous years and once I get a little more settled with my big move, I will be posting some here. Who knows! Maybe someday you'll see your drawing!
G & I had a great weekend last weekend down in Huntsville, Alabama at their Great Big Book Bash! It was a trip to have a whole weekend dedicated to my books. A big thank you to Stephenie Walker and everyone at the library for organizing such great events! More thank yous go out to all of the volunteers, teachers and readers who came out to support me at the GBBB!
