Prinny wins Ann Conner Brimer Award

Atlantic Book AwardsThe Atlantic Book Award ceremony was held in the evening, at Alderney Gate
Library Theatre
, with a packed house.

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.

  • I was SO excited to hear that “The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy” won! I should imagine you are still on cloud nine. So happy for you, Jill. Both are wonderful books and very deserving of the award.

      Hi Laura,
      thanks so much for writing – and for the good wishes. I was really stunned that Prinny won – hadn’t expected her to. Good on her, is what I say!
      Best with your next book…when it starts to nudge you.
      I’m looking forward to reading your book…come the summer. Nothing to do for two months but read!!
