Boisean Tony Doerr
You heard right.  Boise.

Our community is extremely proud of our neighbor, Anthony Doerr, winning the 2015 Pulitzer Prize for literature for his novel, All the Light We Cannot See.

Congratulations, Tony!

This is such a coincidence! Anthony Doerr graduated from University School, where I teach 3rd Grade.He just came last week and gave a presentation on his book, All the Light We Cannot See! Some of our more advanced readers read The Legend of Jimmy Spoon each year to connect to our theme on Native Americans!

Cindy, what a small world! Thanks for your kind words about The Legend of Jimmy Spoon. Have you read its sequel, Jimmy Spoon and the Pony Express? He and Nahanee also appear in The Great Railroad Race!
Take care.
