Award-Winning Fiction

Keturah and Lord Death

For April, our theme is "award-winning fiction". Some awards, such as the White Pine Award for high school students, give awards to authors and novels that students vote for, based on a list of nominees they read during a set period. In 2008, the White Pine Award went to Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt from Canada. Another award, called the Man Booker Prize, is awarded to an author from the British Commonwealth or Ireland. The winning book in 2008 was The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga, who lives in Australia. Come into the library to see our selection of award-winning fiction, set up on the display shelf at the front.
