We’ll rant and we’ll roar like true Newfoundlanders…

Ann Connor Brimer Vicki GrantEspecially if I win.

I’m off to St. John’s, Newfoundland, tomorrow for the Atlantic Book Awards. Betsy Wickwire and I are up against Gloria Ann Wesley, (Chasing Freedom) and Susan White (The Year Mrs. Montague Cried ) for the coveted Ann Connor Brimer Award.

In 1990, the Nova Scotia Library Association established the Ann Connor Brimer Award for writers residing in Atlantic Canada who have made an outstanding contribution to children’s literature.

The impetus for the award came from the late Ann Connor Brimer who was a strong advocate of Canadian children’s literature and saw the need to recognize and encourage children’s writers in Atlantic Canada.

About vickigrant

I am an author of many Young Adult novels including Betsy Wickwire's Dirty Secret, Pigboy, Quid pro Quo, Dead-End Job and 2011 Red Maple Winner, Not Suitable for Family Viewing. Most of my books are funny and/or scary mysteries. I also write high-low quick reads for reluctant readers. Quid pro Quo won the Arthur Ellis Award for Best Juvenile Crime novel and was also nominated for the Edgar Allan Poe Award. Betsy Wickwire is up for a 2012 Snow Willow Award. Keep your fingers crossed for her!
