Michael Scott Curnes Wins Green Book Award for Fiction

Another Inkwater author, another Inkwater win! This time we’re celebrating Michael Scott Curnes’ book For the Love of Mother, which just recently won the San Francisco Green Book Award for Fiction. The Green Book Festival is an annual literary competition that honors books that contribute to greater understanding, respect for and positive action on the changing worldwide environment. A panel of judges determined this year’s winners based on the overall writing style and presentation of the work along with the potential of the work to enhance understanding of the environment and its issues. Last year’s winner in the Green Book Festival fiction category was Margaret Atwood’s The Year of the Flood. Earlier this month, For the Love of Mother was also named an award winning finalist in the International Book Awards competition in the environmental fiction category. For more on Michael’s book, please see our bookstore. Also, Michael will be interviewed live on CBC Radio Daybreak North on Wednesday morning at 6:40 during the Written Word segment. If you aren’t in the North and want to tune in on the web, follow the link and select British Columbia and then Prince George. Lastly, Michael will be conducting a book signing at the Prince Rupert Writes Writers’ Group in the basement of City Hall at 7pm.
