A big congratulations to Jane Yolen for her receipt of the Roots in Writing Award!
The Roots in Writing award is given by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Female Writers. Previous winners have included Betty Ballantine, Madeleine L'Engle, Anne McCaffrey, Ursula K. Le Guin, Kate Wilhelm, Joanna Russ, and the late Andre Norton.
I can't find a website for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Female Writers, but here's a press release from the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America.
Thanks to a Child_Lit member for the news.
