    Currently I am a principal at Robert Ogilvie School and we have been awarded book for our library. I have been assigned the principalship of a brad new school opening in September 2018 in Peace River North School District #60 – Margaret Ma Murray Community School. We are currently trying to order books for the new school. Winning any books from this contest would be an amazing addition to our collection. We are named after Margaret Ma Murray, who was the person associated with the Alaska Highway News – a publisher and writer, she would be thrilled to see BC Books in the library.

    BC Book Prize finalists are wonderful books! I’m so please each year to learn about these stand outs from the BC literary scene. I always find edifying and elucidating reads.

    As a fellow writer I’m curious about what other writers are toiling to create and the BC Book Prizes is list of books I pay attention to. Chosen by a panel of judges these books have attracted attention for many reasons. What a remarkable collection this year.

    The BC Book Prize finalists – great books to recommend.

    I usually obtain them from the Public Library.

    Well done.

    Would love to win one of these, as I am finishing up my 2nd novel and read parallel for inspiration,
    but for some reason, you don’t seem to be accepting my valid email address.

    I am a Teacher LIbrarian at DCSS South Peace campus. Two years ago our library won $500 worth of books and they are wonderful additions to our collection. The book, “We Are All Made of Molecules”, is a particular hit and we have ordered more of this title plus others that we received. Thanks to BC Books for promoting BC authors 🙂

    I am so proud that there is a group dedicated to BC authors. I am a retired proofreader who worked for an American publisher. I really prefer to read Canadian books and especially those authors in British Columbia. I have just spent 4 months away from home due to medical issues. My husband & I (and of course my Kindle and 4 “real” books) left Dec. 20 2017 with the words “You have to go to Vancouver General Hospital for a consultation” (for my husband). Little did we know we weren’t coming back. My husband of 55 years was put in hospital, then hospice and passed away Feb. 7 2018. A service was held Mar.5, 1 week later his brother passed away. I’ve been without transportation, not able to fly back home, my house buried in 7 ft of snow most of the winter (providing me a long stay reading books 🙂 ) I will finally get home this Sunday, April 15, 2018 with barely time to do my income tax for 2017. My books have sustained me but Wow! will I be glad to get back to Smithers, BC!
