The Southern Kentucky Book Fest partners brought the authors of the seventh annual WKU Libraries' Evelyn Thurman Young Readers Book Award winner to Bowling Green for this year's Fall into Books program. Silas House and Neela Vaswani, authors of award-winning Same Sun Here, visited area schools and were honored at a luncheon on Friday, November 22, 2013. Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of WKU Libraries, students at the schools visited were able to receive free copies of the book, and each school received classroom sets of it.
