    Hi! My name is Christie Gibrich, and I work on the Rainbow Project mentioned above in your News and Notes section! I just wanted to let you know that while Dear Bully is most definitely nominated to be on the 2012 Rainbow List, the Rainbow List is not an award- it’s an annual bibliography put out jointly by the GLBT-RT and the SRRT of the ALA. There’s not one book left standing like an award does- we go through the new books and nominate throughout the year (publication range of 18 months so July of 2010 through December of 2011 for this year’s list), then debate their merits during the ALA Midwinter Meeting in January, and come out with an annotated bibliography. Last year we had 32 books on our bibliography, and we hope to keep adding to that number each year as we need more books out there for readers.

    Thank you for noticing us, and for helping us get the word out!
