The Red Maples are beautiful this time of year

Vicki Grant Not Suitable for Family ViewingI’m delighted to announce that my YA mystery Not 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.
