Andy Jones wins Winterset Award

Yeah, this isn't about braving waves or speaking out on development issues. No, this is quite a different post. It's about celebrating tradition and a bit (a lot) of myth, storytelling, superb creativity and writing, amazing illustration.... It's about recognizing one of Canada's (but we claim him gratefully in Newfoundland) greatest storytellers: Andy Jones, who today won the 2012 BMO Winterset Award for his book Jack & Mary in the Land of Thieves. An award worth $10,000. Way to storytell Andy. You are one of our very best.
