The Dundurn Blog

2017 marks not only Canada's 150th year as a country but Dundurn's 45th year has a publisher.

In honour of this, we asked our authors to describe how the Canadian identity or history influenced their work. Some went into great detail, some kept it simple. Here's what they said.

Calgary-based author of mysteries and young adult novels David A. Poulsen is a finalist in the Young Adult category for the High Plains Book Awards.  The awards were established by the Billings Public Library Board to recognize regional literary works that examine and reflect on life on the High Plains.

 

The winners will be announced at an awards banquet that is held in conjunction with the 2017 High Plains BookFest on Saturday, October 21, 2017. Each winner will receive a $500 cash prize.
