Description

The Governor General’s Literary Awards have served as Canada’s premier literary prize for over three-quarters of a century. They have been awarded annually in a variety of evolving categories. Fifteen Governors General have served as their patron.

Between 1936 and 2018, the awards have recognized 719 books in English and French and have been presented to 580 authors, illustrators and translators.

This ground-breaking anthology includes extracts from all 719 books. It gives readers a richly illustrated summary of the stunning variety of titles that have been recognized.

Part of a series, the book is also an invaluable literary companion in its own right. Readers will discover many of the best works of fiction, non-fiction, poetry and drama for both adults and children that have been produced in Canada over the past decades. This anthology belongs on the shelf of every lover of Canadian literature.
