Abandoned Manitoba

The Manitoba Book Awards have announced this year’s shortlist, and we are delighted to see Great Plains authors on the list!

Gordon Goldsborough’s Abandoned Manitoba is up for the Isbister Award for Non-Fiction, the Manuela Dias Book Design Award for General Illustration and the Mary Scorer Award for Best Book by a Manitoba Publisher.

Her Darling Boy by Tom Goodman is up for the Manuela Dias Book Design Award for cover design and we are thrilled to see Tom recognized in the Eileen McTavish Sykes Award for Best First Book category.

Rounding out our nominations is The Shadow Over Portage and Main, edited by Keith Cadieux and Dustin Geeraert, which is up for the Carol Shields Winnipeg Book Award. Great to see all of the Weird writers recognized for their creepy take on Winnipeg.
