This year, I’m thrilled to have two books—100 Things You Don’t Know About Atlantic Canada for Kids, and Be Prepared: The Frankie MacDonald Guide to Life, the Weather, and Everything– on the 2019-2020 Hackmatack shortlist! I feel truly honoured, and I can’t wait to visit schools to talk about the research process behind these books.

At the root of it though, Hackmatack isn’t all about school visits and awards. It’s really about a bunch of kids reading and discussing great Atlantic Canadian books. So get started—here’s everything you need to start your very own Hackmatack Club.

Happy Reading!
