Tessa received the Ohioana Award in 1942 for “Window by the Sea”, chosen as the best book of verse by an Ohio poet. Remember Saturday, May 11, 2013.. “The Ohioana Book Festival is a welcome reminder of the powerful friend we have in a generous author who gifts us with a well-written book.” ( I was able to purchase a signed copy of “Window by the Sea” .. eBay )
