Awards: Toronto Book Winner

Cordelia Strube won the C$10,000 (about US$7,600) Toronto Book Award‚ recognizing titles evocative of the city, for her novel On the Shores of Darkness‚ There is Light, Quillblog reported. The prize is administered annually by the city and the Toronto Public Library.

City librarian Vickery Bowles noted that the title, "which comes from the Keats poem 'Homer,' shows us the vital role that books play in our lives today: by understanding Strube's protagonist, Harriet, and her difficult circumstances, we all come to see that bit of light on the edge of a difficult shore. What a beautiful novel!"
