The Centre for Research in Young People’s Texts and Cultures would like to congratulate Mavis Reimer and Clare Bradford on receiving 2017 Children’s Literature Association book awards.
CRYTC affiliate Clare Bradford received the ChLA Book Award for The Middle Ages in Children’s Literature (Palgrave, 2015), and she and Mavis Reimer received the Honor Edited Book Award for Girls, Texts, Cultures (Wilfrid Laurier UP, 2014). Girls, Texts, Cultures is a volume initiated by a symposium hosted by CRYTC in 2010.
The ChLA Book Award is awarded annually by the Children’s Literature Association to recognize outstanding book-length contributions to children’s literature history, scholarship, and criticism. The ChLA Edited Book Award and Honors recognize essay collections that make a distinct or significant contribution to our understanding of youth literature from a literary, cultural, historical or theoretical perspective.
More details about 2017 ChLA award winners can be found on the ChLA website.
