BC Book Prizes 2012 Shortlists Announced

The West Coast Book Prize Society is pleased to announce the names of the finalists vying for recognition in seven categories at the 28th Annual BC Book Prizes. These nominees — who collectively will receive $14,000 in cash prizes — will be celebrated at a free event, the BC Book Prize Soirée in Vancouver (venue and date TBA in the coming weeks).

At the Soirée, the recipient of the 2012 Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence will be announced. This award was established in 2003 by the Honourable Iona Campagnolo to recognize British Columbia writers who have contributed to the development of literary excellence in the province. In 2011, the seventh annual award was presented to George Bowering.

The winners in the seven categories will be announced at the Lieutenant Governor’s BC Book Prizes Gala on Saturday, May 12, 2012 at The Djavad Mowafaghian Cinema at SFU Woodwards, GOLDCORP CENTRE FOR THE ARTS, in Vancouver. British Columbia’s Lieutenant Governor, the Honourable Steven L. Point, OBC, will be in attendance.

A selection of the shortlisted authors (to be announced in the coming weeks) will be part of BC Book Prizes On Tour presented by Rio Tinto Alcan. This author reading tour will take finalists to schools, bookstores, and public libraries in many communities throughout BC April 25-May 11, 2012.
