The results of the 2014 People’s Choice Awards are in at Goodreads, and we are excited to announce that Burlington’s own Amy Poehler was the winner of this year’s Best Humor Book competition! And since her mother, former BHS teacher Eileen Poehler wrote one of the chapters of the book, it’s reasonable to say that she, too, won the award. Congratulations, Eileen! Oh, and since former BHS English teacher Kathy Dalton is mentioned in the Acknowledgements page, it’s probably accurate to say that Burlington High School won the Goodreads Humor award this year. We’re so proud. Right, and it bears repeating that Poehler’s book features the following passage:
So in short, congratulations to the town of Burlington for winning the 2014 Pulitzer Prize in Literature.
