Mel Anastasiou has been longlisted for the
71st Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour!
Stella Ryman and the Fairmount Manor Mysteries is one of ten books out of seventy that are under consideration for this prestigious award. The shortlist will be announced May 2nd, followed on June 9th by the announcement of the winner.
More information on the longlisted authors, as well as the history of the Medal, membership, and all the previous winners, is available on the Leacock Associates’ website at leacock.ca.
Stella Ryman’s sleuthing adventures were first serialized in Pulp Literature Issues 1, 3, 5, and 7, and were complied into our first novel publication in 2017. We’re incredibly proud of this book and delighted it is being recognized by such an esteemed jury. Please join us in congratulating Mel, and be sure to check out Stella Ryman and the Fairmount Manor Mysteries.
