Prize Watch: Hilary Weston Nonfiction Award

Not much history on the Hilary Weston shortlist.  Indeed not much of what looks like literary nonfiction to me:  the list looks mostly like a selection of journalism by and large. I hasten to say I have not read any of them, and the jury is three people whose judgment I definitely respect.

Anyway, shortlist and details here.  Announcement October 14, prize $60K.

Recently learned that way back in June Ted Barris's The Great Escape won the Libris nonfiction prize from the Canadian Booksellers Association.  Well done, Ted.  No $60k on that one, however.
