The Unquiet Library would like to give a shout out of congratulations to one of our (and our students, too!) favorite authors, Laurie Halse Anderson. She is the winner of the 2009 Scott O’Dell Award for Historical Fiction for her critically acclaimed novel Chains (which we have!). You can read more about this prestigious honor given to Anderson at School Library Journal.
