Ingrid Law's debut novel, Savvy, may be aimed at middle schoolers, but her writing has thoroughly captured the hearts of many a bookseller here at Boulder Book Store. Savvy is a magical tale about Mibs Beaumont's 13th birthday and about the importance of family and friends. Ingrid is from Boulder and we were honored to have her teach a writing workshop here last summer and join us for a book signing last fall.
Savvy has been garnering lots of attention nationwide. Last month, it won a Newbery Honor Medal and now it's up for an Indies Choice Book Award. Ingrid has some lovely things to say on her blog about independent bookstores and about Boulder Book Store.
Thanks, Ingrid! We're delighted to be a part of your book story!
