The Writers' Trust of Canada recently announced the finalists for this year's Hilary Weston Non-fiction Prize. Since 1997, the Weston Prize has been celebrating the best in Canadian non-fiction writing, from history to biography, essay to memoir, and commentary to criticism. This year's nominees were selected by a three-member jury of Stevie Cameron, Will Ferguson, and JJ Lee.
We'd like to congratulate Oolichan Books and Lynette Loeppky on receiving a nomination!
Intense and vivid, Cease follows Lyn as she becomes Cecile’s sole caregiver, exploring how we love and why we stay, especially in times of crisis.
The winner will be announced at a gala ceremony in Toronto on October 6th. For more information about the Weston Prize and to see a full list of this year's nominees, please visit the Writers' Trust website.
