L.A. TIMES Book Winners ’08 Announced on 4/25

Filed under: FYI — sunyprof @ 10:41 am

This year’s pick in the YA category is the British author, Phiip Reeve, whose honored novel, A DARKLING PLAIN, is the 4th book in what is known in the US as the Hungry City Chronicles series.

Since TYRELL was a winner of this same prize in ’06 and PART TIME INDIAN in ’07, thought you might be interested in checking out this quartet of fantasy novels. This week was our fantasy week! KES

P.S. Since A NORTHERN LIGHT is also an L.A. Times Book Prize winner in the YA category (’03) and we actually are talking about ONE book this week I look forward to posts about the novel as you read. You might enjoy Donnelly’s website where you’ll learn among other things that the British edition was titled A GATHERING LIGHT. You can read about her newest adult title, THE WINTER ROSE (which follows her THE TEA ROSE) on her Amazon blog. Fans of ANL will like these as well.
