[Final] Deakin Newsletter, Summer 2011

Andrea Deakin Newsletter

Andrea Deakin has been a great friend, both professionally and personally, even though we have never met face to face. She has been ACHUKA's semi-official Canadian correspondent for many years, always ensuring I am kept up to speed with shortlist and winner announcements. I have lost count of the packages that have arrived from Canada containing books that she thinks will interest me or my grandchildren.

I am grateful beyond words for her generosity, and the farewell messages at the head of her final Children's Literature Newsletter make it clear that this very special English-born Canadian lady has spread that generosity widely.

The University of Alberta Libraries will now assume all responsibilities of the eponymous "Deakin Newsletter", which will be renamed "The Deakin Review of Children's Literature" and will be mounted on a University of Alberta Libraries webpage as an open access ejournal in mid-July.
