Prize Watch: Dafoe Prize shortlist

With not a ton of promotion of publicity, the J..W. Dafoe Foundation has announced its 2021 shortlist for "one of the richest book awards in Canada for non-fiction excellence  [$10,000]. Selection criteria includes subjects involving Canada, Canadians, and the Canadian nation in international affairs."  I don't see a date for the announcement of the winner.

Stephen R. Bown. The Company: The Rise and Fall of the Hudson’s Bay Empire
