Christopher Paul Curtis

Another literary prize has been awarded

The more the merrier! I like to hear of encouragement like this.

In Toronto, the writer Christopher Paul Curtis of Windsor, Ontario, is the victor of the $20,000 TD Canadian Children's Literature Award for his book Elijah of Buxton. The novel looks at the African-Canadian life in Ontario during the mid-19th century.

English Language
The award goes each year to the writer of "the most distinguished English-language book of the year." Christopher Paul Curtis, received the prize at a ceremony in Toronto hosted by the TD Financial Group and the Canadian Children's Book Centre.
Well done, Christopher!
