Turnstone Press is pleased to announce that Joanna Lilley has won the prestigious John Kerner Book Award for Endlings, her poetry collection about extinct animals.

Judges’ Comments from the Canadian Author's Association press release include that "[I]n Endlings, Joanna Lilley’s rich collection of lyrical and devastating poems, voice is given to the final moments of animal extinction. This book-length elegy to the planet’s lost species explores the ruinous impact humanity has had on the natural world while still managing to create wonder and hope." and "This beautifully crafted collection of poetry is a remarkable yet sad tribute to all the species and sub-species we have lost. Joanna Lilley has sent us a new wake-up call – a cri de coeur that she calls Endlings."
