Maine: Portlander wins National Book Award

Earlier this year, readers of the Portland Phoenix were kind enough to name me "Best Portland Author" over several worthy nominees.

One of them, Phillip Hoose, just won the National Book Award for Young People's Literature for his book, Claudette Colvin: Twice Before Justice.

Congratulations, Phillip! You done Portland proud.
