Angeline Schellenberg wins three Manitoba Book Awards
2017-04-25
Angeline Schellenberg took home three Manitoba Book Awards on April 22—one for each of the categories in which she was nominated.
 
Her haul included the Eileen McTavish Sykes Award for Best First Book, the Lansdowne Prize for Poetry and the John Hirsch Award for Most Promising Manitoba Writer.
 
Her first book, Tell Them It Was Mozart, was published in 2016 by Brick Books, and in a recent interview with The Carillon she said the volume of poetry was shaped by the upbringing of her son and daughter, both of whom are on the autism spectrum.
 
“I think it can be a book for anybody, because we all have to face our own imperfections and the uncertainty of life,” she said.
 
In 1994 Schellenberg graduated from Providence with a Bachelor of Arts in Christian Studies and five years later earned her Master of Arts in Biblical Studies from the institution.
 
The Manitoba Book Awards, sponsored by The Walrus and McNally Robinson, was held at the Fort Garry Hotel in Winnipeg.
