2020 Saskatchewan Book Awards Shortlists

The winners of the 2020 Saskatchewan Book Awards will be announced on-line in a virtual awards show set for Thursday, May 28, 2020, at 7:00 pm.. The 45 minute program will be broadcast through social media platforms. Hosting the 27th annual Saskatchewan Book Awards as planned on April 25, 2020, presented a challenge in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, but with continued support from our sponsors and assistance of the Saskatchewan Writers Guild, our Board of Directors has reimagined a virtual event to honour and celebrate Saskatchewan’s talented writing and publishing community.
