ASPP titles win big at Congress 2010

Tuesday, June 29, 2010

Kel Morin-Parsons, Manager of ASPP One of the many wonderful things about Congress is the awarding of a number of book prizes.  With such a critical mass of scholars present, what better place to recognise scholarly accomplishment?  The University of Toronto Press blogs here about a number of its authors who won or received honourable mentions for prizes at Congress 2010.  I’m pleased to say that virtually all of the titles mentioned were supported by the Aid to Scholarly Publications Program (ASPP).  Candida Rifkind, Sheryl Hamilton, Beatrice Craig (a double winner), Becki Ross, Royden Loewen and Gerald Friesen, Kristen Good, Eric Mills, Bryan Palmer and Lara Campbell all received ASPP grants in aid of publication for their distinguished books.  Congratulations to all of them! If you are the author, editor or publisher of an ASPP-supported book that wins or is short-listed for a prize, please let us know!  We would love to spread the word.
