Sneed Collard

January 22, 2024

Sneed B. Collard III, Class of 1983, received the 2024 NCTE Orbis Pictus Award for his children’s picture book, Border Crossings (Charlesbridge Publishing). The book, illustrated by Howard Gray, takes a look at the impact of the border wall on wildlife. The Orbis Pictus is the nation’s oldest children’s nonfiction award and is given out each year to the best children’s nonfiction book of the past year. Sneed’s inspiration for the book came from birding trips along the US/Mexico border both before and after the wall was constructed.
