                 SCOTIABANK GILLER PRIZE WINNER UPDATE

                     


                             


Congrats go out to André Alexis on his Giller Prize win!

The 2015 Scotiabank Giller Prize celebrates Canada's best fiction with $100K up for grabs! The great Giller gala goes down in Toronto on November 10th with a CBC broadcast at 9:00 pm ET and hosted by the ingenious Rick Mercer! Can you tell I'm just a wee bit excited to watch and see who wins? I must say the 5 finalists are a smart looking bunch with 2 savvy short story collections and 3 intriguing novels that should be added to any #CanLit fan's reading list ASAP. I have a soft spot for short stories so ARVIDA and DAYDREAMS OF ANGELS already made it to my Kobo. I've included a few handy dandy links below because sharing is caring and I want to spread the book love with my bookish friends. Check out the 5 finalists and the Giller videos for more info and follow the Twitter #GillerPrize social stream to see what fans are saying!

ARVIDA by Samuel Archibald, translated by Donald Winkler
DAYDREAMS OF ANGELS by Heather O'Neill
FIFTEEN DOGS by André Alexis
MARTIN JOHN by Anakana Schofield
OUTLINE by Rachel Cusk
