October 13, 2007 - Frances Russell Award

Filed under Awards

This Spring, the International Board of Books for Young People (IBBY) gave me an award for a book that I’m working on called After Peaches. It’s a young reader about a kid whose family will be traveling across the province this summer, following the harvests and working on farms, picking everything from strawberries to peaches. I’ll be receiving the award at a meeting of the Vancouver Children’s Literature Roundtable. I’m thrilled!
