Scotiabank Giller Prize by Leanne Dyck

The Scotiabank Giller Prize was aired on CBC TV was my favourite TV show.
Well, let me tell you. Finally, Canadian authors--my heroes, mentors, icons--received the attention they deserve. They talked about how they write--and not in a long-winded way. Oh, no, they spoke with insight and with a sense of fun. It was a party--for them.
This year there were six authors nominated for the $50, 000 prize--one more than usual. I sat captivated.
My only complaint--it wasn't long enough and it's not a series.
