What a great way to start the month! Every year the Canadian Bookseller’s Association recognizes the best of the Canadian book industry with the CBA Libris Awards. I am proud to announce that The Flying Dragon (my lovely home away from home and place of employment) has been nominated for Specialty Bookseller of the year! We are thrilled and honoured to be recognized by our peers, which is of course the most flattering group to be recognised by. We are proud to be included along with fellow Toronto store Books for Business and the fabulous children’s bookstore Woozles Ltd, in Halifax.
A big congrats to HarperCollins Canada editor Lynne Missen, who received a nod for editor of the year. Perhaps you are unaware, but Lynne is reponsible formany of the fantastic Canadian children’s and YA titles out there.
