The latest Oregon Book Awards are out: Graham Salisbury, whose books are set in his native Hawaii, took home his eighth award, extending his record: Salisbury has won twice as many Oregon Books Awards as any other author.

Salisbury’s “Calvin Coconut: Extra Famous” took home the Eloise jarvis McGraw Award for Children’s Literature.

And Ursula LeGuin, the grande dame of science fiction, won the Ken Kesey Award for her latest collection of stories: “The Unreal and the Real.”
