Trillium Book Awards Author Reading 2015

This year the Scotiabank Giller Light Bash will take place on November 5 at CBC headquarters in Studio 40. It will be hosted by Kevin Sylvester, a writer and news broadcaster, who is most known for his book series "Neil Flambé Capers.” The event is sponsored by Kobo, Penguin Random House, Walrus Magazine, and Steam Whistle Brewery among others. This is an amazing literary event and a chance to meet best Canadian authors and even win an autographed set of the Giller Prize shortlisted books. I will make sure to attend.

The short list will be announced on October 8 and the long list looks very impressive:

- Dennis Bock for “Going Home Again”
- Joseph Boyden “The Orenda”
- Lynn Coady for “Hellgoing”
- Craig Davidson for “Cataract City”
- Elisabeth De Mariaffi for “How To Get Along With Women”
- David Gilmour for “Extraordinary”
- Wayne Grady “Emancipation Day”
- Louis Hamelin for “October 1970”
- Wayne Johnston for “The Son of a Certain Woman”
- Claire Messud for “The Woman Upstairs”
- Lisa Moore for “Caught”
- Dan Vyleta for ”The Crooked Maid”
- Michael Winter for “Minister Without Portfolio”
