All Sorts of Awards News. . .

We tend to think of the fall as the big awards season, but the spring has plenty of them too and Canadians (and Dewey picks) are all over them!

The Orange Prize Shortlist has been announced.  Congrats to Canadians Emma Donaghue and Kathleen Winter who made the cut.  The full shortlist is located here.

And the Dublin IMPAC Award just announced its 10 book shortlist.  Read about it here.  Thrilled that Michael Crummey has made it with Galore as well as personal favorites William Trevor for Love and Summer and Evie Wyld for After the Fire, A Still, Small Voice.

And the shortlist for the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize has also been announced.  Read it here.  Delighted to see Per Petterson in particular on the list.  I really loved I Curse the River of Time.
