Nicole participated in CBCSA Branch event "And the Winner Is" earlier this year.  Having listened to our excellent presenters Nicole predicted that "Mr Huff" by Anne Walker would win the Early Childhood category and "Cloudwish" by Fiona Wood would win the Older Reader category.  Outstanding Nicole.  Well Done.
