  1. Eve Catarevas says her entry is titled, “Sidewalk Sam.”

  2. Sussman, Joanna says:

    Hi Barbara,

    While Kar-Ben doesn’t publish in the way of middle grade fiction, we do occasionally publish for that age group, and I’d be happy to take a look at your winners in that category if you’d like to send them.

  3. Let me just say that I’m delighted that our winners represent the East Coast, West Coast, the Mid-West, the Southwest, and Israel. I think that says a lot about our community pulling together across geographical boundaries.
