Miss Smithers won the Sheila Egoff Award for the best children’s book by a BC author! We had a fantastic time at the dinner. This is the first thing I have won since that gift certificate for a full set of highlights in 1986. (I loved those highlights but have to say this is much better!)
Thanks to the amazing owners and staff of Vancouver Kidsbooks who joined us at the ceremony, to Sandy and Doug and Felicia from HarperCollins, and Debra from Raincoast Express who were all so much fun and made our table the rowdiest (something I always strive for) and to my awesome cousin Megan who created the cover for Miss Smithers out of chocolate to celebrate!
