Quills nominees announced

The finalists for the Quills have been announced.  Each category will have a single winner decided by a board of 6,000 booksellers and librarians.  The category winners will be announced in mid-September.  Then the public will get the chance to vote for the overall winner of all categories.  There are some really great books to pick from in the children's categories.  It will be fun to see which one wins!
