Winner: American Book Award

Congratulations to Nikki Giovanni! Her book, The Collected Poetry of Nikki Giovanni: 1968-1998, has won a 2008 American Book Award. The American Book Awards were established by the Before Columbus Foundation to provide recognition for outstanding literary achievement from the entire spectrum of America's diverse literary community.

In November, Nikki stopped by our booth at the National Council of Teachers of English meeting to say hello--and we were happy to report that teachers continue to tell us that their students love her poetry.

We thought you might like to sit in as Nikki reads her poetry....
