It’s officially April, which means two things in Austin: bookmarks and bluebonnets abound! Our annual bookmark contest for grades K-6 brings in so much incredible art each year that I can’t wait to share. The contest also always gives a little glimpse into what’s being read in the schools. What did we see this year? There’s still a lot of love for Wonder and Crenshaw, and there were more than a few Dav Pilkey tributes, but we saw notably fewer Geralds and Piggies than in previous years, for some reason. Sorry guys, kids are fickle. Maybe next year!
Our bookmark display is up on the café wall and will be up the whole month of April! Come see all of the amazing book-inspired artwork we received from young readers, including contest winners & runners-up! pic.twitter.com/0v4Cd5d7eI
