Under This Unbroken Sky was awarded the Margaret and John Savage First Book Award and the Thomas Head Raddell Best Book Award! It is an incredible honour to be acknowledged at home. The Raddall was presented by the staff of the Writers Fed of NS, an organization and community that supported and encouraged me every tentative step. Each award carries a monetary prize which grants a writer the greatest gift–time to create. I had arrived back from Delhi that afternoon and had been up for 44 hours by the time of the ceremony. It felt as though I might have still been dreaming in Delhi.
