More on Ottawa Book Awards Shortlist! #UmbrellaMan

Very kind of Marlène Barré, the Cultural Funding Officer at the City of Ottawa, to send me the jury’s notes on Umbrella Man as well as the official photos from the celebrations.  Here they are!

Umbrella Man

In Umbrella Man, Peggy Blair shows us Havana’s people and politics with compassion and humour, through the eyes of the shrewd Inspector Ramirez. This is storytelling at its most deft and confident, illuminating the human condition in its smallest details, and the state of the world in its big picture.

    Dear Ms. Blair,
    My name is Marleen Collins. I am writing on behalf of me and my friend Sylvia Amaya who was born in Cuba to tell you how much we have enjoyed your books. The detail of life in Cuba and all your interesting characters is fascinating. We have read all 4 books and are looking forward to a fifth.
    Thank you for the adventure
