  1. Coteau Books shares in the glory for their author, Wendy Phillips, won for kidlit. And Saskatoon takes home an award for nonfiction. All said, it’s been a great week for SK writing!

  2. Cool Water is her debut novel, that is to say her first novel. She has at least three short story collections: Wednesday Flower Man, Bad Luck Dog, and Reckless Moon. As well, she’s written several plays, including Club Chernobyl, which was nominated for a Governer-General’s Award in the drama category in the early 90s.

  3. I have Cool Water in my haus. I’m going to read it now. The cover alone is brilliant. I like this Club Chernobyl title.
