We’ve been told never to do it – but in this instance it was totally sanctioned and now after thousands of avid readers have voted – we have a winner!
Sheree Fitch’s Kiss the Joy as it Flies has won the CBC Book Club’s Bookie for Best Book Cover of the year.
There’s a lot of sweetness in this victory – as this cover is a redesign since the book was first released in 2008 AND the message of the book: through great life change comes great self-discovery and joy. So along with this perceived parallel comes more praise for the multi-award winning author.
Sheree Fitch was born in Ontario, grew up in New Brunswick, now lives in Nova Scotia (and Washington DC too). And although much has been written about her, what with her best-selling children’s books and constant critical acclaim, we thought who better than the lady herself to describe Sheree Fitch. So we delightfully pulled the following from her website…
"I'm a writer, reciter, a speaker, a teacher, a sister, a daughter, a mother, a wife. A listener, a seeker , a maker of nonsense, a reader, a leader, a lipslippery fool. A doctor, a walker, a talk-talk-talk- talker, a giggle-glad Oma, an odd sort of soul.
Yearner and learner - An ever beginner!
Hope is my teacher - Life is my school.
Lovely! And just as you’d expect from Fitch – her site is as entertaining and wonderful as her books. We look forward to catching up with the busy author in the near future. But for today we salute you Sheree Fitch along with the Award Winning Nimbus Publishing team - Heather Bryan for the great design and Jennifer Embree for the perfect illustration! SABS
