Lane Anderson Award Nominations Announced

The Lane Anderson Award is a new award for science writing in Canada. It will honour two jury-selected books, adult and young reader, published in the field of science by Canadian-owned publishers, and authored by Canadians. The winner in each category will receive $10,000.

Here are the short lists - one for adult books and one for kids books. 


Alanna Mitchell's Sea Sick: The Global Ocean in Crisis
The River Returns: An Environmental History of the Bow by Christopher Armstrong, Matthew Evenden and H.V. Nelles
Top 100 Food Plants: The World’s Most Important Culinary Crops by Ernest Small.

Young Readers:

The Insecto-Files by Helaine Becker, illustrated by Claudia Davila
Big and Small, Room For All by Jo Ellen Bogart, illustrated by Gillian Newland
Why Do Horses Have Manes? by Elizabeth MacLeod

Yes! You read that right! My very own The Insecto-Files has made the list!!! I'm sooo excited...I've mentally spent the $10,000 prize six times over!

Two three-person jury panels drawn from the Canadian academic, publishing, creative and institutional fields will review submissions in the two categories, and the jury will be announced with the winners at an event in Toronto on the 15th September.
