Congrats to Sara Zarr on her National Book Award nomination!

Story of a Girl by Sara ZarrWe heard the news this morning that local author Sara Zarr has been nominated for the 2007 National Book Award for Young People’s Literature for her debut novel, Story of a Girl:

When she is caught in the backseat of a car with her older brother’s best friend, Deanna Lambert’s teenage life is changed forever. With subtle grace, complicated wisdom, and striking emotion, this debut novel captures a girl’s struggle to redefine herself.

The winner will be announced at the National Book Awards Benefit Dinner and Ceremony in Manhattan on November 14. Of course, we’re a little prejudiced because we think she’s terrific and we love the book. Good luck from all of us at TKE, Sara; we’re rooting for you! If you haven’t had a chance to meet her, Sara will be at the Utah Humanities Council Book Festival at the Downtown SLC library on Saturday, October 27th.
