Recipe for Hate is nominated for the John Spray Mystery Award!

September 19, 2018 – Dundurn Press is thrilled to announce that Recipe for Hate, the first book in Warren Kinsella’s punk political The X Gang series, has been nominated for the Canadian Children’s Book Centre’s John Spray Mystery Award!

Recipe for Hate follows a group of young punk musicians living in 1970’s Maine. Bands like The Hot Nasties, The Social Blemishes, and the Punk Rock Virgins make up the X Gang, led by the socially progressive Christopher X and his best friend Kurt Blank, a talented guitarist living in the closet, who are forced to face off against a growing Neo-Nazi presence in their city,  when one of their friends is brutally murdered.

Jury members called the book, “a great look into the history of music and what it means to be an outcast,” saying, Recipe for Hate is an intense and sometimes uncomfortable read, especially knowing the story is based on real event.

Award winners will be announced at the end of October.
