Patricia Vermillion, the librarian at Lamplighter School, doesn’t just choose books for children to read — she writes them as well.
Vermillion has been chosen by the San Antonio Conservation Society to receive a 2015 citation for her picture book Texas Chili? Oh My!, which was published in 2013. She will be honored with a framed certificate at a ceremony and book signing on March 20 in San Antonio.
In a letter from the president of the society, Sue Ann Pemberton, the citation reflects “our sincere appreciation for a work which furthers the purpose of the Conservation Society: to preserve Texas History and to educate the public with knowledge of our inherited values.”
