RBC Taylor Prize 2017 Longlist

TORONTO, Nov. 30, 2016 /CNW/ - Jurors John English, Ann MacMillan, and Colin McAdam today announced the longlist for the sixteenth RBC Taylor Prize. They read 101 books written by Canadian authors and submitted by 29 Canadian and international publishers. "Each of these titles represents a contribution: whether it is to knowledge, to how we understand ourselves, or to how we might make sense of our complicated planet. As a whole, this list reveals a world of war, survival, art, whales, and wireless connectivity—people playing games and people suffering harm. We applaud these authors who devoted such energy, scholarship, and sympathy to their subjects. All of these books should be read," the jury notes.
