  • Cats’ Night Outby Caroline Stutson (A Paula Wiseman Book: Simon & Schuster)

"The rhythm of the language and the rhyming words are evocative and precise. The repeated refrain reminds us these are city cats, and though their dancing isn't appreciated by the city's humans, the music continues to call them, and their feet just won't stay still. Young children know all about how hard it is to stay still. Great book!"

DENVER, CO (May 11, 2011) The Colorado Authors’ League (CAL), Colorado’s premier organization for professional writers, announced winners of its 2011 Colorado Authors’ League Awards. Independent judges from Southwest Writers (SWW) of New Mexico chose finalists and winners in eight categories for the 2011 CAL Awards. “CAL’s best work was judged by an independent group of published writers who are our peers,” says contest chair and novelist Bruce Most. “SWW found the high quality of CAL member’s work a pleasure to read, although deciding on a single winner was sometimes difficult.”

Winners were announced and honored at CAL’s annual banquet on May 10, 2011. Full information and coverage
