Awards

2012 Winner

Matt Cohen Award: In Celebration of a Writing Life

Selection Committee Citation

“Jean was a pioneer Canadian writer, standing almost alone as a major, internationally recognized Canadian children’s author. She was an outstanding leader when it came to fearless book promotion. Her school appearances were legendary... let’s just say they could send shivers of fear and joy through children’s spines.”
— 2012 Matt Cohen Award Committee (Patsy Aldana, Graeme Gibson, and Wayne Grady)
