Ari Goelman Shortlisted for YA Sunburst Award

2014 Sheila A. Egoff Children’s Literature Prize finalist Ari Goelman (The Path of Names) has been shortlisted for the Young Adult category of The Sunburst Award for Excellence in Canadian Literature of the Fantastic.

From The Sunburst Award jury: “Ari Goelman’s The Path of Names dives deep into mysteries not only of the kabbala and numerology, but of prepubescence and the complexities of quasi-romantic entanglement. A likable thirteen-year-old amateur magician navigates camp counselors, ancient Hebrew, mean girls, and spiritual possession by a long-dead rabbinical scholar to solve the mystery of two ghost children displaced in time. This one’s for those who love a smart, sassy heroine better versed in card tricks than in the social pecking order of summer camp.”

The winners will be awarded in the fall. Visit The Sunburst Award Society’s website for more details.
