Marcus and the Amazons: KART Kids Book List Award
My certificate from the Kart Foundation for the inclusion of Marcus and the Amazons on the 2011 Kart Kids Book List arrived today.
I am deeply grateful that Marcus and the Amazons, out of 1000+ submissions, has been chosen as one of the be included on this list.
I hope that Marcus's story, which the Kart judges described as an "adventure fable that combines Caribbean & North American history while honoring the values of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. & Marcus Garvey," will inspire young readers to follow the example of these two great leaders, my heroes, who devoted their lives to freedom and justice.
