BC and Yukon Book Prizes shortlists announced
Congratulations to all the authors, illustrators, and publishers shortlisted for the 2022 BC and Yukon Book Prizes!
Our partners had a hand in three of the finalists:
Merrie-Ellen Wilcox proofread Luschiim’s Plants: Traditional Indigenous Foods, Materials and Medicines, by Dr. Luschiim Arvid Charlie and Nancy J. Turner (Harbour Publishing), which is shortlisted for the Bill Duthie Bookseller’s Choice Award and the Roderick Haig-Brown Regional Prize.
Audrey McClellan was the substantive editor of Possessing Meares Island: A Historian’s Journey into the Past of Clayoquot Sound, by Barry Gough (Harbour Publishing), which is shortlisted for the Roderick Haig-Brown Regional Prize.
Amy Haagsma copy edited Where the Power Is: Indigenous Perspectives on Northwest Coast Art, by Karen Duffek, Bill McLennan, and Jordan Wilson, in collaboration with the UBC Museum of Anthropology (Figure 1), which is also shortlisted for the Roderick Haig-Brown Regional Prize.
These three books face tough competition in their respective categories, and we’ll be watching with interest when the winners are announced on September 24. Three cheers for all the nominees!
