INSIDE YOUR INSIDES shortlisted for Lane Anderson Award

From Claire:

The Lane Anderson Award — created by the Fitzhenry Family Foundation — honours the very best science writing in Canada today, both in the adult and young reader categories. I'm delighted to announce that Inside Your Insides: A Guide to the Microbes That Call You Home (Kids Can Press, 2016) has made the three-book shortlist of finalists for the 2016 Young Reader award. It's an introduction to the human microbiome, aimed at middle grade kids - or anyone who finds the subject a bit intimidating!

My earlier book, Before the World Was Ready: Stories of Daring Genius in Science (Annick Press, 2013), was the winner of the 2013 Lane Anderson award. To reach the shortlist again is a great honour.

The winners of both adult and young reader categories will be announced at an event in Toronto in September.
