Booker Prize Shortlist 2023See more

The International Booker Prize has announced the six titles on their 2023 shortlist.

The annual award celebrates the best works of fiction from around the world that have been translated into English and published in the U.K., or Ireland. The £50,000 (approx. $83,169 Cdn) grand prize is divided equally between writer and translator. 

French-Moroccan novelist Leïla Slimani, chair of this year's five-person panel, said in a statement that the shortlisted books "are all bold, subversive, nicely perverse." The shortlisted titles cover diverse themes ranging from the challenges of motherhood to the struggles of undocumented workers and the dangers of nostalgia.  She added: "I think I speak for the whole jury, when I say that I am proud of this list. I think it's a very cool, very sexy list."

2023 Canada Reads WinnerSee more
Ducks: Two Years in the Oil Sands is an untold story of Canada: a country that prides itself on its egalitarian ethos and natural beauty while simultaneously exploiting both the riches of its land and the humanity of its people.

Canada Reads is back! This year, the great Canadian book debate was looking for one book to shift your perspective.

Following two months of buildup and three days of heated debates, Kate Beaton's "Ducks: Two Years in the Oil Sands" - championed by Jeapardy! Champion Mattea Roach - was voted the 2023 Winner on March 30th. 

"We are all implicated in the story Ducks tells,"  Roach said during Canada Reads 2023 finale. "Ducks is one woman's story, but it is the story of an industry that we all rely on in some way. Whether we are people living in Alberta who go to work in the sands ... Whether we're people that live in central Canada who benefit from the wealth this industry creates. We are all implicated."

The stories we tell, and the way we tell them, can shape how we see ourselves, our communities and the world. This collection of books is an opportunity to broaden our horizons, expand our worldview and think differently about the world around us and our place in it.

Winner of the 2023 Jeanne Clarke Publication AwardSee more
“I have been exploring B.C. for many years — mostly along the backroads— and finding, not only delight in the amazing scenery but also a way back into time,” she said. “The history of B.C. unfolds along every First Nations trail and in their villages; then there are fur trading posts, gold rush roads and camps, old churches, pioneer ranchers and settlements, mines and railways, and forgotten graveyards. There is history and wonder everywhere. I hope that my books and photographs encourage people stuck in the big cities and wired into the technology of our times, to seek adventures for themselves. To put their footprints where others have long trod. Again, my thanks, and keep travelling.”

2022 Giller Prize WinnerSee more
When a mudslide strands a train, Baxter, a queer Black sleeping car porter, must contend with the perils of white passengers, ghosts, and his secret love affair
November 7, 2022 (Toronto, Ontario) – Suzette Mayr has been named the winner of the 2022 Scotiabank Giller Prize for her novel, The Sleeping Car Porter, published by Coach House Books, taking home $100,000 courtesy of Scotiabank.

The Sleeping Car Porter brings to life an important part of Black history in North America, from the perspective of a queer man living in a culture that renders him invisible in two ways. Affecting, imaginative, and visceral enough that you’ll feel the rocking of the train, The Sleeping Car Porter is a stunning accomplishment.
The Giller Prize (sponsored as the Scotiabank Giller Prize), is a literary award recognizing excellence in Canadian fiction. It is given to a Canadian author of a novel or short story collection published in English (including translation) the previous year, after an annual juried competition between publishers who submit entries. The prize was established in 1994 by Toronto businessman Jack Rabinovitch in honour of his late wife Doris Giller, a former literary editor at the Toronto Star, and is awarded in November of each year along with a cash reward of CAN$100,000 (as of 2014).
