Ottawa Book Awards (librarian wins for fiction!)

The Ottawa Book Awards were announced last night at Library and Archives Canada, at a Writers Festival event. The winners are…

English non-fiction – Dark Days: The Story of Four Canadians Tortured in the Name of Fighting Terror by Kerry Pither (the CBC reports that Pither has pledged any profits she makes from sales of her book to Amnesty International Canada… commendable!)
English fiction – Eva’s Threepenny Theatre by Andrew Steinmetz (yes, he’s one of us! And an accomplished poet, and songwriter/guitarist, and more! Read an interview here, a bio here and a review of Eva here!)
French non-fiction – Esprit de sel by Maurice Henrie
French fiction – Chronos à sa table de travail by Margaret Michèle Cook
