2018 Toronto Book Awards short list announced

The City of Toronto and Toronto Public Library have named the five 2018 Toronto Book Awards shortlisted titles. Established by Toronto City Council in 1974, the awards honour books of literary merit that are evocative of Toronto. 

Short list for the 2018 Toronto Book Awards:
• Dionne Brand curated "The Unpublished City" published by BookThug
• David Chariandy's "Brother" published by McClelland & Stewart
• Carrianne Leung's "That Time I Loved You" published by Harper Collins
• Lee Maracle's "My Conversations with Canadians" published by BookThug
• Kerri Sakamoto's "Floating City" published by Knopf Canada

"Every year, The Toronto Book Awards highlights the diversity of prose and creative vision of our city’s writers," said Mayor John Tory. "This year's short list adds to Toronto’s deep and rich literary legacy and I congratulate all the nominees."

"This year, the Toronto Book Awards short-list has amazed me! Not only are these some of Toronto’s most engaging and relevant writers, they all come at their topics from such different points of view," said Vickery Bowles, City Librarian. "Not surprisingly, all of these writers have done events at the library in the last several months and this, too, is a sign that the public wants to hear and engage with these voices. What a great list for our city’s favorite literary awards."

The winner of the 2018 award will be announced on October 10 at an event at the Toronto Reference Library. Members of the public are welcome to attend the awards ceremony hosted by CBC Radio's Gill Deacon at the Bram and Bluma Appel Salon starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are free and will be available at http://www.tpl.ca/appelsalon/ in September.

Shortlisted authors are scheduled to read from their books at The Word On the Street book and magazine festival at Harbourfront Centre from noon to 5 p.m. on September 23. They will also participate in a reading and panel discussion at Malvern Library on October 3 at 7 p.m.

This is the 44th year of the Toronto Book Awards. The annual awards offer $15,000 in prize money. Each shortlisted finalist will receive $1,000, with $10,000 going to the winner. This year's Toronto Book Awards Committee is composed of volunteer members Nathan Adler, Susan G. Cole, Kevin Hardcastle, Soraya Peerbaye and Itah Sadu.
