Thanks to the CBC for adding my voice to the list of fine writers who have done the Magic 8 Ball!
Such an honour to be at the Mayor’s Arts Awards on October 11, and I’m thrilled that Bad Endings won the Vancouver Book Award! Congrats to all the nominees, and many thanks to the judging panel, and the City of Vancouver.
If I look a little nervous here, it’s because I was a little nervous! I didn’t have a speech prepared, but people tell me I did okay. 🙂
Well, I certainly didn’t expect to get this news at 6AM yesterday. Absolutely thrilled to be a finalist for the Rogers Writer’s Trust prize, alongside Leanne Betasamosake Simpson, Omar El Akkad, David Chariandy, and Claire Cameron. Grateful to be included in this list! Many thanks to the Writer’s Trust, and to my publisher, Anvil Press.
