May Hill Arbuthnot Honor Lecture Award: Lois Lowry
Precocious Katy Thatcher comes to realize what a gentle, silent boy did for his family. He meant to help, not harm. It didn't turn out that way.
"The author balances humor and generosity with the obstacles and injustice of Katy's world to depict a complete picture of the turn of the 20th century."--"Publishers Weekly," Starred.
