300 Years of Beer, penned by local beer aficionados Bill Wright and Dave Craig, is up for three awards.  The illustrated history is up for the Best Illustrated Book of the Year, the Manuela Dias Book Design of the Year, and the Mary Scorer Award for Best Book by a Manitoba Publisher.  Bartley Kives and Bryan Scott’s hit Stuck in the Middle is shortlisted for the Carol Shields Winnipeg Book Award. The Fall by Colleen Nelson is up for the McNally Robinson Book for Young People Award.  We hope to see Colleen as the two-time winner of this category (her first novel, Tori By Design, received the award in 2012)!

You can find all of the nominees on the Manitoba Writer’s Guild website.  The Awards Ceremony takes place Sunday, April 27th at the West End Cultural Centre.  Congratulations to all of those nominated for the Manitoba Book Awards!
