Mark Critch from the TV show This House Has 22 Minutes makes it on to the prestigious RBC Taylor Non-Fiction Prize long list for Son of a Critch: a childish Newfoundland memoir, along with our local favourite Elizabeth Hay for All Things Consoled. Former Governor General David Johnston also finds a place on the list for Trust: Twenty ways to build a better country. Several memoirs join Critch like Darrel McLeod's Mamashatch: a Cree coming of age which won the GG for non-fiction, from BC, Just Let Me Look at You: On Fatherhood by Bill Gaston, and Heart Berries by Marie-Terese Mailhot. For more of the long listed titles see the display below.
The short list will be announced January 9, 2019, with a ceremony to honour the winner on March 4, 2019.
