Thomas King has won this year’s $40,000 British Columbia National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction for his book “The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America”.
It’s published by Doubleday Canada.
Jury members called it a ”wry, iconoclastic and important book that challenges us to think differently about both the past and the future”.
The 70-year old King is a two-time Governor General’s Award nominee .
In its 10th year, the B.C. non-fiction prize is presented by the British Columbia Achievement Foundation.
