Monique Polak is the author of seventeen novels for young adults and a two-time winner of the Quebec Writers’ Federation Prize for Children’s and Young Adult Literature. She has been teaching at Marianopolis College in Montreal for more than thirty years and is a frequent contributor to the Montreal Gazette. Monique has three new titles coming out with Orca Books in spring 2016 and is the CBC Montreal-QWF inaugural writer-in-residence. 2015 marked the 150th anniversary of the publication of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.
