Anna Frank Award [please note this is not the same as the Anne Frank Award]

Feniks publishing house and the Makedonija Prezent Foundation of Skopje, Republic of
Macedonia, will be presenting the International Anna Frank Award to Canadian writer K.V. Johansen at
the 22nd International Book Fair in Skopje, which will be held from 13 to 18 April 2010. The award jury -
Hristo Petreski (president), Aleksandar Prokopiev, Velko Nedelkovski, Tode Ilievski and Svetlana
Ivanovska - selected the author of the book Torrie and the Snake-Prince, which was published in the
Macedonian language as Тори и принцот-змија by Vermilion Books, translated from English by Marija
Todorova.

K.V. Johansen is also to be a guest of the Skopje Book Fair, where she will attend the launch of
the Macedonian translation of her children's novel, Torrie and the Snake-Prince. Johansen, a scholar who
has, in addition to her many novels for children and young adults, written two books on the history of
children's literature, will also be taking part in a panel discussion on children's literature in Canada and
Macedonia with Macedonian academic Vlada Ursevic as part of a Day of Canadian Culture organized in
co-operation with the Canadian Embassy in Belgrade.

On her way to Macedonia, Johansen will be in Vienna, Austria, on April 9 and 10 for the launch
of her latest book, The Shadow Road, at an event organized by the Canadian Embassy in Vienna. The first
book in this series for teens, Nightwalker, was included in VOYA's Year's Best List 2007, was an Ontario
Library Association Top Ten Best Bets book for 2007, and winner of the 2008 Ann Connor Brimer
Award.
