"Wasn't it Kermit who said it's not easy being green? Well, Arthur and I completely disagree with him."

Bestselling author Marc Brown, whose latest book is Arthur Turns Green, is one of four recipients of the 2012 Green Earth Book Award. All were honored at Salisbury University during its annual Read Green Literature Festival in April.

On behalf of the Newton Marasco Foundation, which gives the book award, Amy Marasco Newton thanked recipients for inspiring her generation — and the next. She especially applauded the winners of the Eastern Shore Reading Council's Young Author Contest, who attended the ceremony. The evening also featured a keynote talk by sisters Janet Stevens and Susan Stevens Crummel, who shared many of the humorous inspirations behind their New York Times bestseller Help Me, Mr. Mutt!, and other titles.

In addition, the week-long festival included author visits to area schools, a panel discussion on environmental literature, book-signings, and a community day at Barnes & Noble.

The exhibit "Art, Children's Literature and the Environment" is on display at the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art through Sunday, June 10. Featured are works by Green Earth Book Award recipients, including all of the original art for Cindy Trumbore and Susan Roth's The Mangrove Tree: Planting Trees to Feed Families.
