2012 Finalist

Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers

Jury Citation

“Mariko Tamaki paints exquisite and highly perceptive portraits of life’s many collisions of identities and desires. In the heartbreakingly brilliant graphic novel Skim, Tamaki elevates teen angst to an epic tale of alienation and romance.” -- 2012 Dayne Ogilvie Prize for LGBTQ Emerging Writers Jury (Kamal Al-Solaylee, Ivan Coyote, and Michael V. Smith)
