A Celebration of Literature for Children and Young Adults
Calgary Convention Centre ~ October 3-5, 1996 ~ Calgary, Alberta
It is not surprising that Diana Wynne Jones creates mystery, magic and fantasy in her books for children and young adults. Following the outbreak of World War II, the family moved to the Lake District, a part of the world noted for witches. She says, "what I am after is an exciting and exacting wisdom, in which contemporary life and potent myth are intricately involved and superimposed."
She has won many awards and honours, beginning in 1975 with the Carnegie Commendation for Dogsbody. She has won the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award twice and was nominated for the International World Fantasy Award.
