Penguin Random House Canada titles sweep Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize shortlist

WEston1For the second year in a row, a photo puzzle was hand-delivered to the publishing imprints with titles nominated for the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Non-fiction. This morning, however, there was only one delivery address, as all five shortlisted books fall under the Penguin Random House Canada umbrella.

The finalists – selected from 95 titles submitted by 50 publishers – were determined by a jury comprising author and journalist Carolyn Abraham, journalism professor and author Stephen Kimber, and non-fiction writer and folklorist Emily Urquhart. The winner, who receives $60,000, will be announced Nov. 2.
