Two Edward Willett titles chosen for cataloge of excellent Saskatchewan books
Edward Willett's young adult fantasy novel Soulworm (Royal Fireworks Press) and his children's biography J.R.R. Tolkien: Master of Imaginary Worlds (Enslow) have been chosen for inclusion in The Spirit of Saskatchewan: Celebrating Excellence in Books, which recommends literature written in the province in recent years for students at every stage of their education. The catalogue, which will be distributed to schools and libraries around the province and will also be available online, is a collaborative venture among the Saskatchewan Writers Guild, the Saskatchewan Publishers Group, the Saskatchewan Book Awards, Saskatchewan Learning, and the Saskatchewan Library Association. All of the books included have either been nominated for or have received a Saskatchewan Book Award; many have also received award recognition outside the province.
