This information arrived late but GPW didn’t want to forget that: Maria Friscia was juried into the Stamford Art Association's “19th Annual Vivian and Stanley Reed Marine Show.” The exhibit ran through May.

Lynn Garelick, docent at the Bruce Museum, will be conducting the weekly docent tour at the museum on Friday, June 8th starting at 12:30 PM.

Leigh Grant’s book, Mask of Dreams, was awarded The Chatelaine Book Awards Grand Prizes for Romantic Fiction and Women’s Fiction.

Sarah Darer Littman’s book BACKLASH was voted a 2018 Louisiana Young Readers’ Choice Honor Book for 6-8th grade. It has also been nominated for the Tween Book category of the 2019 Arizona Grand Canyon Reader Award. Both of these awards are voted on by teen readers, which makes them extra special. Sarah recently slept overnight at Windham High School’s Lock In For Literacy, an annual event to promote reading and literacy.
