September 2012

D&M Publishers is delighted to announce that Joshua Knelman’s Hot Art: Chasing Thieves and Detectives through the Secret World of Stolen Art has won the 2012 Edna Staebler Award for Creative Non-Fiction.

“Hot Art is a hugely satisfying and meticulously researched real-life detective story that will surprise and intrigue you,” said Ute Lischke, award juror and Laurier professor of English and Film Studies.

In addition to Hot Art, the shortlist for the 2012 Edna Staebler Award also included: The Chimps of Fauna Sanctuary: A Canadian Story of Resilience and Recovery (Harper Collins, 2011) by Andrew Westoll and Most of Me: Surviving My Medical Meltdown (Greystone Books, 2012) by Robyn Michele Levy.

An award presentation for Knelman will take place Nov. 13 at Laurier’s Waterloo campus. A second presentation will occur Nov. 14 at Laurier’s Brantford campus.
