Sharon Creech ’67 is a finalist for the 2010 Ohioana Book Award in the juvenile book category for her book “Unfinished Angel” (Harper Collins – 2009). All Ohioana Book Award nominees were either born in Ohio or have lived in Ohio for at least five years. The Ohioana Book Awards began in 1942 to bring state and national attention to Ohio authors and their books. Each year, up to six awards may be given to provide recognition and encouragement to authors for outstanding books in fiction, nonfiction, juvenile books, poetry, and about Ohio or an Ohioan.
