Congratulations to Deborah Katz who has won the 2018 Vine Award for Canadian Jewish Literature in the Children’s/Young Adult Category. The $10,000 literature award is for Deb’s work, Rare is Everywhere, that showcases eleven animals with vibrant illustrations and playful poetry. The text combines science and art to demonstrate that uniqueness is to be celebrated.
The Jury commented: “(Rare Is Everywhere) is fun, exciting and such a different take on difference and diversity for our small children.”
Well done, Deborah!
