The longlist for the 2015 International IMPAC Dublic Literary Award was announced by the Dublin City Public Libraries on November 24th. The 2015 award marks the 20th year, celebrating a novel written in English or translated into English annually in order to promote excellence in world literature. The longlist is created by submissions from library systems in major cities from around the world.
We'd like to congratulate all the longlisted titles but especially those that were published by our very own LPG members, rounding out a very strong Canadian presence on the list.
