Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing goes to Boys: What It Means to Become a Man

16/05/2019

The Writers' Trust of Canada announced on May 15 in Ottawa that this year's winner of their Shaughnessy Cohen Prize for Political Writing is Rachel Geise's Boys: What It Means to Become a Man.   The Jury says of the 2018 publication: "With a skillful mix of original reporting, scholarly research, and personal anecdotes, Rachel Giese presents a deeply felt examination of the forces that shape how boys see themselves and how we see them. No one, from parents to policy-makers, can read Boys without rethinking their notion of manliness, masculinity, and how we raise young men."  

Other nominations for the Prize are: Homes: a Refugee Story, Breaching the Peace: the Site C Dam and a Valley's Stand Against Big Hydro, Pipe Dreams: the Fight for Canada's Energy Future, and Big Lonely Doug: the Story of One of Canada's Last Great Trees.

The 2018 winner was Tanya Talaga's Seven Fallen Feathers.  Go to their website for more great reading suggestions from past winners and nominees!
