Lynda Williams's Righteous Anger nominated for Hal Clement Award

Lynda Williams's novel Righteous Anger (EDGE) has been nominated for the Hal Clement Golden Duck Award.

This award is named after Hal Clement, the pen name of the late Harry Stubbs, a well-known science fiction writer and science teacher. The award is for science fiction books suitable for Grades 6-12 that have a young adult protagonist. The science should be as correct as possible, but still a good story.

The Golden Duck Awards will be presented at DucKon 17 in Naperville, IL, June 13 to 15.
