Even more congrats to NL Writers

Along with a spot on the Giller Longlist last year and an ever-growing list of "Best of" honours for Kenneth J. Harvey's masterpiece, Inside, this week the book was nominated for the Winterset Award and now has won the prestigious Rogers Writers' Trust Award for fiction. To see the recognition this novel has received, visit his blog. Congratulations Kenneth. I am so pleased for you. It is well deserved.

Also, congratulations to the other nominees of the Winterset Award, Russell Wangersky's The Hour of Bad Decisions (I highly recommend this book as well--I loved it) and Ken Babstock's Airstream Land Yacht (shortlisted for the 2006 Governor General's Award for Poetry).

And to my friend, Paul Butler, whose wonderful novel NaGeira, was on Donna Morrissey's shortlist of books she considered for Canada Reads.
