Atlantic Book Awards – Ann Connor Brimer Award for Nix Minus One!

 
 
At the 2014 Atlantic Book Awards, held in Charlottetown on May 21st, Nix Minus One received the Ann Connor Brimer Award for Children’s Literature. Yes, I was very happy!

Atlantic-Book-Awards-logoThis is a wonderful affirmation of a book that was both challenging and rewarding to write.

My thanks to the Brimer family for their longtime support of this award, and to all the many organizers of the event.

The reception prior to the ceremony, at The Merchant Man, was filled with familiar faces (and very good food!), and it was enlivening to be in the company of so many fine writers – including, of course, Jan Coates (The Power of Harmony) and Meghan Marentette (The Stowaways), also nominated for the Brimer for their strong, heart-warming books.

Oh, and I wanted to bring all balloons home with me!
