Three Award Nominations!

Three pieces of good news.
The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy was nominated for the 2011 Josette Frank Award, by the Children’s Book Committee at Bank Street College of Education in New York City. This means my book was one of six nominees out of the thousands of books reviewed by the committee – a big honour! I wasn’t permitted to post this online until after the winner was named. Out of My Mind by Sharon M. Draper was the winner – my congratulations to her and her book.

The Present Tense of Prinny Murphy is one of ten books chosen by the Canadian Library Association for their 2011 Book of the Year for Children Award. The winner is announced at the end of May. I’m very happy to find Prinny on this list.

Home Truths is nominated for the 2011 Snow Willow Award (the winner is voted on, and announced, in 2012), as part of the Saskatchewan Young Readers’ Choice Awards. The Snow Willow Award is for grades 7 to 9. Great to find Brick on that list!

  • Congrats on all the nominations! Your books are all wonderful, Jill. You already know I’m a big fan of your writing but I figure it’s always nice to hear and often!!

    • Dear Laura,
      Thanks for getting in touch again – always good to hear from you. I hope your own creative work goes well.
      I’ve had my head buried in my fourth book, and am only just surfacing for air – I know, I’m a terrible blogger!!
      Isn’t it lovely to have warmer days. Crocuses in bloom in my garden and daffs in bud.
      Do take care,
