Dorothy’s List Books We are proud to announce that we have purchased all thirty of the 2019-2020 Dorothy’s List books!
Dorothy Canfield Fisher was an educational reformer for both children and adults, social activist, and best-selling author in the early twentieth century. The Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book (DCF) Award was created to honor excellence in children’s literature. Each year since 1957, Vermont students in grades four through eight have selected their favorite book from a list of 30 nominees. It is recommended that students read at least five of the year’s nominated titles before voting. Voting takes place in the spring, generally beginning in April.
If you would like to sponsor an author or book for this year’s DCF List we would appreciate it!
