The winner of the 2012 Colorado Book Award in the Juvenile Fiction category is – City of Orphans by Avi.

Even though Letters to Juniper didn’t win, the folks at Colorado Humanities and Center for the Book went out their way to make all the finalists feel like winners. The awards event was held on Friday, June 22, at the Doerr-Hosier Center at Aspen Meadows. A few hundred people gathered for an afternoon of celebrating books in a gorgeous mountain setting. Silt was well represented at Table 7 with local literary giants, Lisa Bracken, Ann Ramsey and Peggy Tibbetts, CBA finalist. What a party! A fabulous time was had by all.
