May 29-June 1, 2012: NLA member Carol Rigby wound up her five-year term on the Canadian Library Association’s Young Adult Book Award jury with the opportunity, as this past year’s chair, to present the award to this year’s winner, Catherine Austen, for her novel All Good Children at a gala awards evening at this year’s annual CLA conference, held in Ottawa. She also presented this year’s “notables” — the top ten shortlist — at a conference session. The notables presentation is posted in the publications section of this website.
