Rachel Hartman’s Seraphina named Boston Globe-Horn Honour Book

On May 31st at BookExpo America, The Horn Book’s editor in chief Roger Sutton and 2010 Boston Globe–Horn Book Award-winning author Rebecca Stead (When You Reach Me, Random House) announced the 2013 Boston Globe–Horn Book Award winners and honour books. “The Boston Globe-Horn Book awards have always had an independent spirit and this year is no different,” said Sutton. “Each of the judges brings a unique perspective on children’s literature, which combined always makes for a wonderful variety and high quality of winners and honor books and almost always provides us with a few surprises as well.” Rachel Hartman’s Seraphina (Random House Books for Young Readers/Doubleday Canada) was named an honour book in the fiction category.

Celebrating its 46th year, the Boston Globe–Horn Book Awards are among the most prestigious honours in the field of children’s and young adult literature. Winners and two Honour Books are selected in each of three categories: Picture Book, Fiction and Poetry, and Non-Fiction.
