Congratulations to Sara O’Leary and Julie Morstad (illustrator), whose stunning children’s book, This is Sadie made the shortlist for a 2016 Quebec Writers’ Federation Award. Nominated in the category of Children’s Literature: Picture Books with Text and Beginner Readers, This is Sadie introduces readers to a little girl with a big imagination.
Every year, The Quebec Writers’ Federation shines the spotlight on the best English-language writers to emerge from Quebec. The QWF Awards include six $2,000 book prizes for Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry, First Book, Translation, and Children’s and Young Adult Literature. The winners of these book prizes are announced at QWF’s Gala each year, making it indisputably the most important literary event of the year for Quebec’s English-language writers and their readers.
