2015 Nonfiction Award Celebration

2015 Nonfiction Award Presentation

More than 120 people gathered on Saturday, April 25, to celebrate the Children's Book Guild’s 2015 Nonfiction Award Winner Steve Sheinkin. Clyde’s Gallery Place in Washington, D.C., provided an elegant venue for the day’s festivities. This year’s luncheon was sponsored by KPMG’s Family for Literacy program, whose founder Beth Veihmeyer explained its mission of providing books for children in low-income neighborhoods in the U.S. and several foreign countries where KPMG has offices.

Staff and PTSA representatives from two D.C. schools selected by Turning the Page -- King Elementary School and Kramer Middle School -- were guests at the luncheon, where they received baskets of books donated by Guild authors and illustrators.
