Congratulations to the authors who were recently longlisted for the Victoria Butler Book Prize!
Harbour's nominees include non-fiction writers David Spalding, Enchanted Isles: The Southern Gulf Islands (photographs by Kevin Oke), Arthur Black, Black to the Grindstone, Barry Gough, Fortune's a River: The Collision of Empires in Northwest America, and poet Patrick Lane, Last Water Song.
“Formal recognition of the many writers in the community is important,” said Mary Virtue, President of the Victoria Book Prize Society. “These awards focus on the best we have to offer and increases public exposure for all submissions through critical attention from readers and the media.”
