KATHLEEN DAVIS WINS A CHRISTOPHER AWARD FOR HER BOOK “FEATHERS FROM ABOVE”
Local author Kathleen Davis and illustrator Martyna Nejman, of Warsaw, Poland, have been honored with Christopher Awards for their book, Feathers From Above, (pre-school and up, Kathleen Davis Books). It is one of twelve books for adults and young people as the Christopher Awards program marks its 74th year. Davis’s three children inspired “Feathers from Above,” a rhyming children’s book. When they found feathers, they told her that their Guardian Angel must have paid them a visit. In the book she describes how feathers fall from their Guardian Angel’s wings and encourages children to be brave, know that they are loved, and remember that God is with them through good and bad circumstances. The Awards celebrate authors, and illustrators as well as writers, producers, and directors whose work “affirms the highest values of the human spirit” and reflects the Christopher motto, “It’s better to light one candle than to curse the darkness.” Christopher Awards were also given to the creators of 10 TV/Cable shows and feature films.
