Tanya Talaga has won the RBC Taylor Prize, an annual award of $30,000 for the best work of literary non-fiction in Canada.

Seven Fallen Feathers: Racism, Death and Hard Truths in a Northern City is about the lives and deaths of Indigenous teens near Thunder Bay, occuring between 2000  and 2011.  There have been more deaths of Indigenous youth since that time, so the tragedy continues.  The jury panel of Christine Elliott, Anne Giardini and James Polk declared it to be "detailed, balanced and heart-rending....it is impossible to read this book and come away unchanged."
