A Special Tribute to CIPA Member, Sue Allegrezza

By Mike Daniels

It is with great sadness that we learned of the passing of multiple CIPA EVVY Award winner and longtime CIPA member, Sue Allegrezza. Sue was a talented artist who wrote, illustrated and published her award-winning, Billy Raccoon’s Grand Colorado Adventure. She was a giving and caring person and each year Sue would donate copies of her book to the CIPA Education and Literacy Foundation at the CIPA Holiday Party. Billy Raccoon’s Grand Colorado Adventure is her legacy and our hope is that more children and teachers will come to enjoy her informative, beautifully illustrated book that brings Colorado’s spectacular sights and animal inhabitants to life through the eyes of a little raccoon. She will be deeply missed.
