BC Book Prizes

Posted by Carla Maria Lucchetta on March 13, 2009

When I lived in Vancouver, 2000 to 2006, I looked forward every year to the BC Book Prizes, an opportunity to celebrate the best books chosen from a pretty talented pool of writers.  Fairly quickly it gave me a sense of how supportive and welcoming the BC community of writers is with fellow writers and book media. It was both inspiring and relieving.

Every year I look forward to the short list, and miss going to the nomination Soiree and the Prize Gala. 2009 marks BC Book Prizes 25th annual ceremony, to be held on April 25th.

Here are this year’s contenders. Congrats to all!
