News and Other Stuff
- New Digs: I recently relocated from Whitehorse to the Vancouver Island area. This makes visiting schools and libraries in southern Canada - especially in southern British Columbia - a whole lot easier! If you're interested in booking a visit or event, please contact me at email@example.com.
- Great Resource: The gang at Sci/Why, the Canadian kids' science writers' blog, has put together a list of great science books for kids. It's organized by curricular topic so teachers, librarians, and parents can find what they want - but easy to browse through too. It's not an exhaustive list - just a selection of authors. But we'll update it and add to it as often as we can. In the meantime, feel free to download it, pass it around, forward it, recommend it, or just plain use it!
- Great Award: BEFORE THE WORLD WAS READY, STORIES OF DARING GENIUS IN SCIENCE won the 2013 Lane Anderson Award for science writing in Canada. Two awards are given each year - one for a science book for adults and one for a kids' book. My thanks to co-conspirators Annick Press and illustrator Sa Boothroyd, and to the Lane Anderson committee.
- How to buy: You can find (or order) BEFORE THE WORLD WAS READY at your nearest brick-and-mortar bookstore or you can buy it online at Amazon or at Chapters-Indigo. For details about all my information books for kids, go to the Non-fiction page on this website.
- Video Visits: Catch me on the web at TVOparents or in the Celebrate Science 2013 Youtube video.
