The Red Maples are beautiful this time of year

Vicki Grant Not Suitable for Family ViewingI’m delighted to announce that my YA mystery┬áNot Suitable for Family Viewing has been nominated for the 2011 Red Maple Award.

And I do mean ‘delighted’.

Several of my other novels have been shortlisted for the Ontario Library Association’s Forest of Reading awards so I know how wonderful this is. Nobody gets kids excited about books like the OLA. In fact, over 250,000 students a year participate in the program. That’s great for the kids – and for all the Canadian writers whose books reach such a wide and enthusiastic audience.
