Episode 19: The Newbery-Caldecott banquet, Grace’s dress, and Imposter Syndrome!
Grace and Alvina take a wonderful trip down memory lane in this podcast. As they both currently prepare for the upcoming Newberry-Caldecott banquet, they reflect on the one in the past they both attended for Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.
You will hear the fantastic story behind how Grace found and hunted down her “awards dress” on social media! She wore the special dress at the 2010 Newberry awards ceremony and will wear again to this year’s event. Her daughter is attending and they’ve both been having fun finding gold shoes!
