The 10 finalists for the prestigious International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award were announced this morning, and Lean on Pete made the cut from some 150 on the longlist. The Irish Times says Pete is a “stand out”. The IMPAC award is the largest and most international prize of its kind with nominations submitted by libraries all over the world for books in any language. Willy is overwhelmed by the honor. The winner will be announced June 13. Keep your fingers crossed for Pete and Charley!
