2011 Butler and Bolen Book Prize winners

Victoria, BC is not only one of the most beautiful places to live, it’s also teeming with literary talent.  The 2011 Victoria Book Prize winners were announced last night.  Too bad I couldn’t make the gala, but I was delighted with both the adult and kid’s book prize winners.  Both are long-time Victoria residents and both are super talented in their fields.  Kristi Bridgeman, the illustrator of Uirapurú (pronounced oor-a-pur-u), was named winner of the Bolen Books Children’s Book Prize and Jack Hodgins, author of The Master of Happy Endings was named the winner of the City of Victoria Butler Book Prize.  Congratulations to both winners, and to the short-listed authors as well.  Visit Victoria Book Prize Society for the short-list, and past prize winners.
