The award winners -- Sook Nyul Choi, Katherine Paterson, Brian Selznick, David Small and Sarah Stewart -- were honored for their extraordinary contribu- tions to children's literature• The authors chosen as the 2009 "Literary Lights" have collectively won dozens of major awards for their in- spiring books, written for children and young adults. "Literary Lights for Chil- dren" seeks to raise aware- ness of children's litera- ture, promote literacy, honor children's authors, and raise money for the library's children's services and collections. The event began with the awards presentation in the historic Bates Reading Room. Four students se- lected from Greater Boston- area schools presented the awards to each of the hon- ored authors. The honorees discussed their writing careers and shared their love of books with the audience of more than 450 children and adults. Tea refreshments were served and enjoyed. The 2009 "Literary Lights for Children" volunteer com- mittee was chaired by Susan Potter, with Rebecca Forres- ter and Mary Pfeifer Lentz as the Honorary Chairs. Sponsors for the pro- gram included Scholastic Children's Book Publishing and Tiffany & Co., along with other corporate sponsors and private donors• For information about "Lit- erary Lights for Children," contact the Associates Office at the Boston Public Library at 617-536-3886, email Associates@BPL.org, Liesl Gilman and her daughter Isabelle at the BPL.
