Story and Golden Kite Winners Named
Posted by: Courtney Jones

In other not-so-late-breaking news, a winner for the Story prize has been chosen. Tobias Wolf took home $20,000 for Our Story Begins. Runners-up Jhumpa Lahiri (Unaccustomed Earth) and Joe Meno (Demons in the Spring), earned cash prizes of $5,000 each.

Even longer ago, the Society of Children’s Book & Illustrators named the Golden Kite winners :
