Amy Jones, Leacock Medalist Finalist.

Amy has made the 2017 short list for the Leacock Medal for humour with her novel We're All in This Together.  The medal celebrates the best of Canadian humour and carries a $15,000 award. In Amy's novel, set in Thunder Bay, a mother goes over Kakabeca Falls in a barrel, survives and sets her dysfunctional family in an uproar when she becomes an internet sensation. In 2006, Amy won the CBC short story prize.  Big congratulations Amy. Good luck! Our fingers are crossed.
