Publication Award

Retired teacher-librarian Jay Sherwood was honoured for his book Ootsa Lake Odyssey, which explores the lives of George and Else Seel. The couple lived about sixty kilometres south of Burns Lake near the small farming settlement of Wistaria from the 1920s until the 1950s, when their property was flooded by the Nechako Reservoir as part of the Alcan project.
