Kate Harris has won the 2019 Kobo Emerging Writer Prize (Nonfiction) for her debut memoir, Lands of Lost Borders. Of Lands of Lost Borders, judge Michael Harris said,
This is so much more than a travelogue; in sharing her adventure biking the Silk Road, Kate Harris gives us a meditation on both our yearning to explore and that darker impulse to divide ourselves into walled-off nations. Lands of Lost Borders is a rhapsodic, deeply researched, and elegantly written book. I cannot wait to see where this writer goes next.
I acquired and edited this book for Knopf Canada.
