VCCA Fellow Receives 2008 Bock Book Award
Congratulations are in order for three-time VCCA Fellow Ysaye Barnwell, who performs with the internationally renowned a cappella quintet, Sweet Honey In The Rock. Her children's book and music CD, We Are One, a poetic tribute to community, togetherness, and diversity in the universal language of music, has received the Frances and Wesley Bock Book Award for Children's Literature. The award is given each year by the Library and the Neumann Institute for Franciscan Studies to acknowledge Franciscan values in children's books. Congratulations Ysaye!
