We are very excited to announce that children's literature professor Courtney Weikle-Mills won the 2015 Honor Book Award from the Children’s Literature Association for her book Imaginary Citizens: Child Readers and the Limits of American Independence, 1640–1868 (2013). The Honor Book Award is the second of two awards given by ChLA to recognize an outstanding book published in 2013. Imaginary Citizens argues that the origin and evolution of the concept of citizenship in the United States centrally involved struggles over the meaning and boundaries of childhood.
Congratulations to Professor Weikle-Mills!
