I was really surprised and gratified to be shortlisted for this history prize. Here’s a link to a Canadian Press article about the prize.
I am thrilled to have A Good Death shortlisted for the Donner Prize. The other nominated books are L’integration des services en sante: Une approche populationelle; Priests of Prosperity: How Central Bankers Transformed the Postcommunist World; A Field Guide to Lies: Critical Thinking in the Information Age; and Brand Command: Canadian Politics and Democracy in the Age of Message Control. Congratulations to the other finalists. The winner will be announced on May 15, 2017.
Heading to Vancouver this week for the announcement. Thrilled to be on the shortlist with three such talented writers. Here’s a link to Tracy Sherlock’s piece about the prize in the Vancouver Sun.
