The nominees for the annual Manitoba Book Awards were announced this week. And I was very excited to see that Put on the Armour of Light has made it to the short list for the Carol Shields Winnipeg Book Award. Also wonderful to note that Alison Preston and Allan Levine, both of whom have appeared on portage and slain, are nominated too. Preston’s Blue Vengeance is on the short list for the Margaret Laurence Award for Fiction and Levine’s Toronto: Biography of a City is nominated both for the McNally Robinson Book of the Year and the Alexander Kennedy Isbister Award for Non-Fiction.
Congratulations to all the nominees. The depth of the lists shows the richness of talent available here.
