Just look at that lovely award plaque! This is the award being delivered to author/ illustrator Julie Morstad for her 2022 Pacific Northwest Book Award-winning picture book, Time Is a Flower.
Every year, winners receive a 3-D mock bookshelf featuring their own book face-out and the other winners’ spines. These awards are lovingly crafted, commissioned by the Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association. You can see how they’re made in this nifty little video!
If you can make it to Seaside, OR for Saturday, February 12, join Beach Books for a live, in-store event with Jill Louise Busby at 6:00 pm!
