Two literary lions are among the veteran writers nominated for the Governor General’s Literary Awards.
Toronto Poet Anne Carson is on the list for “Norma Jeane Baker of Troy.”
Guelph based author Thomas King made the list for the fiction prize for his anti-travelogue, “Indians on Vacation.”
The organizers named the finalists for the 2020 awards this morning after a review process that was delayed because of the pandemic, and which should return to normal for the 2021 competition.
The Peer assessment committees selected 70 titles published last year to be shortlisted across seven categories in both English and French.
The winners will be revealed on June 1.
