for Baila, Nana, baila by Joe Hayes and Mauricio Trenard Sayago
Joe Hayes received the Anne Izard Storytellers' Choice Award for Dance, Nana, Dance. In his acceptance speech, Joe talked about his hopes for his book: "Someone has said that enemies are just people whose stories we don't know. I see a lot of truth in that. The more other people's stories are hidden from us, the easier it is for us to view them as enemies. But when we begin to learn their stories we recognize all we share in common with them and we delight in how the unique beauty of their traditions enriches our own lives."
