from press release

Carol MacAllister, Brevard resident since 2006, has been awarded the 2012 Nautilus Silver Book Award in the Middle Grades and Teens category for her first children’s book, The Wisdom Tree and the Red Swing. Her book teaches the value of taking time to think, to act with compassion, and to behave with civility.  The book offers coping skills for anyone feeling isolated or ostracized and offers techniques for transforming adversaries into allies.  Each chapter can be used independently to teach the specific lesson the chapter addresses.

Nautilus is an independent organization with a mission is to seek out and recognize books and audio books that “promote spiritual growth, conscious living, and positive social change while stimulating the imagination and inspiring readers to new possibilities for a better world.”

After college in Colorado, Austria and Utah, MacAllister was a psychiatric social work in the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Department of the then Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, NY, before residing in New Mexico for 29 years. She retired from The College of Health and Social Services at New Mexico State University in 2005 and now resides in Brevard, NC, where she enjoys, writing, folk art painting and community service.

The Wisdom Tree and the Red Swing will be on display in the Nautilus Award Winners Showcase Exhibit at two national book shows: the BookExpo America in NYC, Jun 5-8, and the American Library Association Annual Show in Anaheim, CA, on Jun 22-25.
