St. James Place Museum - NC

Travelin' near Robertsonville, North Carolina? Stop by the St. James Place Museum, a converted 1910 Baptist church. Dr. A. Everette James, Jr. created the musem, which houses more than 100 North Carolina quilts, including 42 African-American made quilts and hundreds of pieces of North Carolina pottery.

You commented on my blog about why the Kansas City Public Library chose to do a mock Coretta Scott King award session. In our area other libraries were already hosting Mock Newbery, Printz, and Caldecott sessions. Also we all felt that we wanted to learn more about this award. This is only the second year of the mock session (the first I've attended) and we were fortunate to have a committee member with us to talk us through the process and answer our many many questions. It was educational and fun. We only did the illustrator award due to time constraints.

Hope this helps!
