Lands of Lost Borders by Kate Harris is a finalist for the Hubert Evans Non-Fiction Prize. I acquired and edited this book for Knopf Canada. It also won the RBC Taylor Prize.
21 Things You May Not Know About the Indian Act by Bob Joseph is a finalist for the Bill Duthie Booksellers’ Choice Award. I managed this project for Page Two. It has been a national bestseller, and BC bestseller since it went on sale in April 2018.
My first job in publishing was managing the Adopt a Library program for the BC Book Prizes, so these awards are near and dear. The winners will be announced May 11, 2019.
