The Lane Anderson
honours the very best science writing in Canada today, both in
the adult and young-reader categories. Each award will be
determined on the relevance of its content to the importance of
science in today’s world, and the author’s ability to connect the
topic to the interests of the general trade reader.”
The annual Lane
Anderson Award honours two jury-selected books, in the
categories of adult and young-reader, published in the field of
science, and written by a Canadian.
The winner in each
category will receive $10,000. Two three-person jury panels drawn
from the Canadian academic, publishing, creative and institutional
fields will review submissions in the two categories.
Closing date for
submissions is April 30th 2013 for books published in 2012. A
shortlist will be announced on August 20th, 2013. The 2012
winners will be announced at an event in Toronto in September, 2013.
