It was an exciting evening, as “The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy” won the Ann Connor Brimer Award for the best
children’s book published in 2009 in the four Atlantic provinces. Because “Nine Lives” won this award last year, I really hadn’t expected to win.
Stunned? Happy? Overwhelmed? Grateful? All of the above!
And a big vote for Ann Brimer’s family for this award, which encourages children’s writers throughout NS, NB, PEI and NL.
