Irene N. Watts winner in Quesnel

Just back from giving 2 presentations at the Quesnel Red Cedar party put on by the school district for the Red Cedar student voters. I was on the Red Cedar fiction selection committee for this year’s list, reading 87 books to arrive at a short list of 15. And my book Francesca and the Magic Bike was on the shortlist the year before, so I really felt a part of things. I was delighted when they announced the Quesnel student fiction choice was Flower by Irene N. Watts and phoned her as soon as I got in last night. She was best pleased! The winners for the province will be announced at the gala in Surrey later today.
