2020 WinnerRBC Bronwen Wallace Award for Emerging Writers
for Six Things My Father Taught Me About Bears
“'Six Things My Father Taught Me About Bears' features a child narrator as she describes life with her single father and the meaning of family. Leah Mol’s deceptively simple sentences brim with meaning and tenderness and brilliantly capture a voice caught in that fleeting moment between childhood and adolescence with great empathy. This is a deeply moving snapshot of a family whose conditions are unstable but their love resilient."
