I Am Scout named an ALA Best Book

News from local author Charles Shields:

Barboursville author Charles J. Shields’s biography for young adults, I Am Scout: the Biography of Harper Lee, has been chosen as a 2009 Best Book for Young Adults by the American Library Association.

Shields is currently writing an adult biography of Kurt Vonnegut (Henry Holt & Co.). They were working together at the time of Vonnegut’s death in April 2007.

Personally, I cannot wait for the Vonnegut bio.
