Some of Our Authors' Recent Accomplishments
Leapfrog Press has celebrated many successes in the last few years. Here are just a few.
Mick Carlon was named the 2013 recipient of The Massachusetts Teachers Association Human & Civil Rights Award. His novel Riding on Duke’s Train has been adopted by Jazz at Lincoln Center and is being made into a feature-length, animated movie by the Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Ken Kimmelman. Both his children’s novels are being read this week by hundreds of underserved children at the Harlem Children’s Zone, thanks to a generous gift from Jazz at Lincoln Center.
Helen Phillips, author of And Yet They Were Happy, received the prestigious Rona Jaffee Foundation Writer’s Award in 2009.
