Providence alumna’s poetry garners Manitoba Book Awards nominations
Angeline Schellenberg’s volume of poetry, Tell Them It Was Mozart, has been nominated for a trio of Manitoba Book Awards.
Shaped by the upbringing of her son and daughter, both of whom are on the autism spectrum, the poems “form a story,” says Schellenberg in a recent interview with The Carillon. “I think it can be a book for anybody, because we all have to face our own imperfections and the uncertainty of life.”
Schellenberg, who graduated from Providence with a Master of Arts in Biblical Studies in 1999, will be looking to take home the Lansdowne Prize for Poetry, the Eileen McTavish Sykes Award for Best First Book and the John Hirsch Award for Most Promising Manitoba Writer.
In 2015 Dr. Luann Hiebert, who teaches English Literature at Providence, was nominated in the Lansdowne and Sykes categories for her book, What Lies Behind.
The 2017 Manitoba Book Awards will take place April 22 at The Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg.
