Newbery!

We loved Matt de la Peña when he came to Whidbey as guest faculty in 2015. The news that he won the Newbery for Last Stop on Market Street came while we were at our January 2016 residency. Carmen burst into our Workshop class to tell us. It was kind of awesome, that sense of our little MFA program being connected to wider world.
