Arthur Slade wins 2010 TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award

The Canadian Children’s Book Center and TD Bank Financial Group have awarded their $25,000 TD Canadian Children’s Literature Award, one of
the largest cash prizes for children’s literature, to Arthur Slade, author of the Middle Grade steampunk adventure THE HUNCHBACK ASSIGNMENTS.

The award is for the most distinguished book of the year, defined as “marked by conspicuous excellence and/or eminence, individually distinct and noted for significant achievement with excellence in quality” and
is open to all genres of literature written by a Canadian for children
ages 1-12 yrs.

The prize was awarded at a gala event on Tuesday evening in Toronto, Canada. The book’s publisher, HarperCollins Canada Ltd, received an additional $2,500 for further promotional purposes.

Slade is one of the founding members of The Steampunk Writers Guild, a new organization dedicated to fostering the advancement of Steampunk literature around the world.
