Jeff's first children’s novel, Soapstone Signs, was launched this year. The year began with Soapstone Signs being included as one of 25 Canadian Children’s titles chosen for a mega-launch at the OLA Super Conference. Jeff is very proud to celebrate the selection of Soapstone Signs by the Club Amick program (founded by former Lieutenant-Governor James Bartleman) for free-circulation to children in far northern communities. The Canadian Children’s Book Centre selected Jeff’s novel to be part of their Best Books recommendations for 2015. Out of six books selected in his category of Early Chapter Books. Soapstone Signs was the only title to receive a Red Star, reserved for titles of exceptional caliber. Please see: www.jeffpinkney.com
