Joseph Boyden wins Canada’s Giller Prize

The Giller, Canada’s most prestigious literary prize, was awarded last night to Joseph Boyden for his book Through Black Spruce.

If you want to get your hands on this piece of Canadian lit history, AbeBooks has a signed copy of Boyden’s winning novel available at its Charity Auction which runs November 20 – 25. Also included in the lot with Through Black Spruce is Rawi Hage’s Cockroach, which was one of the runners up to the award.

All proceeds from the auction are being directed to various charities including The United Way, Vancouver Children’s Hospital and The Children’s Brain Tumor Research Fund at the Royal Marsden Hospital in the UK.
