Which Side Are You On? wins the Aesop Prize
<i>Which Side Are You On?</i> wins the Aesop Prize November 1, 2012

We're so happy to announce that Which Side Are You On? The Story of a Song has won the American Folklore Society's prestigious 2012 Aesop Prize! Congrats to author George Ella Lyon and illustrator Christopher Cardinale. Here's what the American Folklore Society has to say about Which Side Are You On?:

The urgency and bravery described in Which Side Are You On? is at once both historic and contemporary ... Author George Ella Lyon, and illustrator Christopher Cardinale, do a masterful job of portraying the historic setting and the unsung heroes of the coal minersí strikes in the 1920ís and 30ís. And yet, by bringing this era into sharper focus, Lyon and Cardinale bring the realization that folk song is ever relevant in contemporary society. This book showcases a classic example of folk song, while simultaneously providing the context in which this song for social change took root. Social unrest, and the desire for justice, provide fertile ground for the flourishing of folk music as the voice of the oppressed. By describing the development of this song, Lyon and Cardinale remind us of its relevance today.
