You're Invited - South Asia Book Award Ceremony

The South Asia Book Award is two years old!  I was privileged to serve both of these premiere years and to read and select excellent books.

The award, administered by the South Asia National Outreach Consortium, is given annually for up to two outstanding works of literature, from early childhood to secondary reading levels, which accurately and skillfully portrays South Asia or South Asians in the diasporas, that is the experience of individuals living in South Asia, or of South Asians living in other parts of the world.

And now it's almost time for the free award ceremony, taking place right here in WI:
