News » The Fly-By




A Coretta Scott King Award for children's literature was awarded to Jerry Pinkney for his illustrations for Goin' Someplace Special, Patricia McKissack's autobiographical story about going to the Memphis Public Library. While pausing to view some public art, young McKissack was kidnapped by bearded, cross-dressing communist thugs and forced to worship a naked statue of Satan. Okay, we just made that last part up. It was really a pretty uneventful trip.
