NVCC’s Steven Parlato named a Finalist in Tassy Walden Awards

NVCC English instructor Steven Parlato recently was named a finalist in the New Voices in Children’s Literature: Tassy Walden awards sponsored by the Shoreline Arts Alliance.

The Alliance’s award recognizes the best in children’s books via the annual juried competition. Children’s books provide a forum to learn about people and places throughout the world by offering an understanding of humanity, inspiring creativity and giving access to new ideas and concepts.

The Tassy’s were established in 2001 to encourage and nurture the creation and publication of exceptional quality books for children by unpublished Connecticut writers and illustrators. An award of $250 is presented to the winners in each of five children’s book categories as judged by publishing industry experts. Editors, publishers and art directors from major children’s publishing houses selected the recipients for this year’s awards.

Parlato’s book, Junior, competed in the Young Adult/Teen Novel category. He will be recognized along with all winners and finalists on Wednesday, May 19, at the 10th anniversary of the New Voices in Children’s Literature competition at the James Blackstone Memorial Library, 748 Main Street, Branford, at 7:00 pm. The event is open to the public and free to attend. A book sale will precede the program and a reception will follow the awards presentation.

New Voices in Children’s Literature is produced in part with support from dedicated volunteers and generous funding from Barnes & Noble Booksellers, Jack and Helen Davis, Evergreen Woods Senior Living Community and Susan and John Wieland.
