Libris Awards: not much history this year

The Canadian Booksellers' Awards, the Libris prizes, were awarded last night in Toronto. History titles were pretty thinly represented, perhaps confirming the occasional suggestion here that we have not seen a huge production of big eye-catching books on Canadian history in recent years.. John English's much honoured Trudeau biography, Just Watch Me, was the most "historical" nominee, but lost to Wade Davis's The Wayfarers. Details at the CBA site.
