Sarah Ellis has won the Third Annual TD Canadian Children's Literature Award for Odd Man Out, a moving, funny story of a boy coming to terms with his changing family and with the truth about his father. Finalists for the TD prize included Jan Thornhill for I Found a Dead Bird: The Kids' Guide to the Cycle of Life & Death, Hadley Dyer for Johnny Kellock Died Today, Linda Bailey and illustrator Bill Slavin for Stanley's Wild Ride, and Tim Wynne-Jones for Rex Zero and the End of the World. Congratulations Sarah and Tim, Vermont College faculty colleagues both.

Writer Natasha Yim, a student of mine, is interviewed on California Readers.
