“Wake Up Call,” an essay by Wisconsin writer and Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators member Stephanie Lowden, won first place in the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s “Go Big Read” reading program contest.
The program’s news release is at http://www.news.wisc.edu/20444, which says, “Most of us may think economics is a subject best left to university professors and politicians, but it would behoove us to learn more about how our country’s policies affect the rest of humanity, not to mention our own jobs at home,” Madison resident Stephanie Lowden wrote in her winning essay. “Understanding this will help turn a complex issue into a very human story. And from the human story, perhaps a way forward.”
