Through the Between the Pages presentations in cities across Canada, readers will get a chance to peer inside the minds and creative lives of the writers who’ve made it onto the 2022 shortlist.

 
Here’s what the Jury had to say:"As the world roils and rolls on in this strange new decade, the 2022 Scotiabank Giller Prize jury can report that Canadian fiction is only becoming more bountiful, energetic, meaningful, funny, and moving. The jury’s discussions and debates throughout the year were nuanced and spirited, but most of all we were continuously in awe of the cornucopia presented to us. We are proud to showcase a longlist of fourteen outstanding titles that are sweeping in scope, touch all corners of life, and which provide pleasure and stimulation as well as urgency and depth. To the nominated authors, it is our delight and honour to say: Congratulations, and thank you.”
 
 
Books are available from our friends at Perfect Books. Please note there will be no on-site book sales at this event.
