Roderick Haig-Brown Regional Book Prize

Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize

Bill Duthie Booksellers’ Choice Award

We are also thrilled to share that Nightwood Editions received a nomination for the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize for For Your Safety, Please Hold On by Kayla Czaga, and our sister press, Douglas & McIntyre, received a nomination for the Hubert Evans Non-Fiction Prize for The Elusive Mr. Pond: The Soldier, Fur Trader and Explorer Who Opened the Northwest, by Dr. Barry Gough, who is also a Harbour author!

The BC Book Prizes is awarded annually in seven categories, with the intent to celebrate the best writing and publishing in the province. The awards carry a cash prize of $2000 plus a certificate. The winners of the BC Book Prizes will be announced at an awards gala in Vancouver on April 25, 2015.
