Who’s going to come out on top of the strangest Giller Prize shortlist in years? While the smart money is on Rawi Hage’s DeNiro’s Game, which is also nominated for the Governor General’s Award, writers from the Globe raised a convincing argument for Gaetan Soucy’s the Immaculate Conception.
Sadly we won’t get to see Canada’s literati ogle Justin Trudeau but that doesn’t mean that you can’t celebrate Canada’s biggest literary prize, go to a great party and help raise money for Frontier College all at the same time.
For the last five years, Toronto’s literary community has been celebrating the Giller with the Giller Light Bash. In the last five years, they’ve raised over $60,000 for literacy programs.
This year the party will be at the Steam Whistle Roundhouse at 255 Bremner Blvd and starts at 7:00pm on Tuesday night. Tickets are $25 and available at the door and online.
