Green Earth Book Awards 2008
Heading off to the USA to pick up my prize for The Light-Bearer's Daughter. This will be loads of fun as there is a book festival, awards ceremony, author breakfast, school visit, and lots more besides. I am really looking forward to meeting the other prize winners - authors, illustrators, and environmentalists - as well as the organisers, students, and everyone else involved. Salisbury University has a beautiful campus. Will take some pics while I am there. Here's the Green Earth Book Award T-shirt. Love the polar bear! (Does he like my book because the word 'bear' is in the title?) The artwork is by Jeremiah Trammell who illustrated Winston of Churchill (yes, that is Churchill, Manitoba) - "One Bear's Battle Against Global Warming" - written by Jean Davies Okimoto and published by Sasquatch Press. They won the Children's Fiction category. For more information on the awards and the other winners go to: http://www.newtonmarascofoundation.org/programs/a_ge_pw.cfm.
