Saltwater Mittens wins Best Atlantic Published Book Award
Boulder Books is deeply honoured to win the Best Atlantic Published Book Award for Saltwater Mittens by Christine LeGrow and Shirley Anne Scott.
Publisher, Gavin Will described the Saltwater Mittens authors as funny, incredibly talented, and dedicated to promoting the culture of Newfoundland and Labrador.
“This book has been tremendously successful and is proof of the value people place on cultural authenticity,” Will said.
“It is also important that we chronicle the work that women do. Crafts such as knitting have not always been taken seriously – primarily because it is carried out by women at home.”
The award is sponsored by Friesens Corporation from Altona, Manitoba. They also printed the first edition of Saltwater Mittens.
The Atlantic Publishers Marketing Association’s award for Best Atlantic Published Book award celebrates the printed book which best exemplifies publishing activity in Atlantic Canada.
