Dundurn Press is excited to announce that two of its books have been nominated for the Ontario Library Association’s 2021 Evergreen Award program!
Broken Man on a Halifax Pier by Lesley Choyce is a tale of one man’s shipwrecked life and an unlikely crew of rescuers. Library Journal calls this “a great vacation book, one to take to the beach or to curl up with by the fireplace.”
Praised by Quill & Quire in their starred review as “visceral and emotional,” Seven by Farzana Doctor is a brave, soulfully written feminist novel about inheritance and resistance that tests the balance between kinship and the fight against customs that harm us.
Congratulations, Lesley and Farzana!
The Evergreen Award program is a perfect way for public libraries and book clubs to engage with best titles in Canadian fiction and non-fiction. The 2021 Evergreen Award winners will be announced during Ontario Library Week in October, 2021. Learn more about the Evergreen Awards here.
