Maureen Hayes knew the importance of bringing children and an
author/illustrator together and the impact it can have on their lives.
In 2005 the Association for Library Service to Children, a division of
the American Library Association, established the Maureen Hayes
Author/Illustrator Award, funded by Simon & Schuster Children's
Publishing. This award honors Maureen Hayes life-long effort to make
such visits reality.  

The award provides up to $4,000 towards the honorarium and travel costs
of a writer/illustrator to visit a location where children might
otherwise never have this amazing opportunity.  

Applicant must be an ALSC member, work in conjunction with other
organizations, be able to supply administrative support, facilities and
visibly promote this presentation as a distinctive event.  For more
information visit the ALSC website
d/index.cfm  or contact Linda Ernst lindaern at kcls.org
