What do these three panelists have in common except for a great eye for riveting children’s stories? They’re all major award-winners. Newbery Medal–winner Christopher Paul Curtis’s new novel, The Journey of Little Charlie, follows the perilous adventures of a young boy in the American South and offers an important lesson on the roots of racism. CLA Book of the Year Honour Book winner Rachelle Delaney shares a charming middle-grade story of wannabe journalist and reluctant astrologer, Clara Voyant. Susin Nielsen, Governor General’s Award–winner and much-loved regular of the Festival, brings us back to the modern world with No Fixed Address, a tale of homelessness. Discover the personalities behind these decorated names.

Shannon Ozirny is the Head of Youth Services at the West Vancouver Memorial Library and reviews young adult literature for Globe Books.
