The glamour of Canadian literary prizes is unquestionably entertaining, but it’s also complex. This must-see panel features poets, novelists, and nonfiction writers who know the thrill of winning and the disappointment that comes from being overlooked. Billy-Ray Belcourt, Samra Habib, Kagiso Lesego Molope and Casey Plett engage in a much needed discussion on Canada’s prize culture moderated by Catherine Hernandez. Closed Captioning will be provided for this event.
