In celebration of the 2020 Scotiabank Giller Prize finalists, Audible is illuminating the art of storytelling with a unique work, The Audlib Project. This Audible Original is an ad-lib collaborative short story, written collectively by all of the 2020 Scotiabank Giller Prize finalists, where each explored the theme of “Home,” as inspired by the creativity of their work. The Audlib Project is available for free, exclusively at Audible.ca and current and/or past works of the 2020 shortlisted authors are also available on Audible.
The 2020 jury produced an outstanding shortlist and we look forward to celebrating all five authors tonight at 9 p.m. EST during a live broadcast. The evening will be hosted by Canadian actor, Eric McCormack with performances by Canadian jazz pianist and singer, Diana Krall.
Each year, we gift the Scotiabank Giller Prize shortlisted authors a leather-bound copy of their book as a keepsake to commemorate the experience. Since 2000, the Scotiabank Giller Prize has been working with the amazing team at Felton Bookbinding to create these beautiful pieces of work. Bookbinding is a fascinating art form that not a lot of people know about. So, we asked Keith at Felton Bookbinding a few questions. We wanted to share his answers with you in hopes that you might learn something new.
Each year, Giller Light Bash events are held across Canada on the evening of the Scotiabank Giller Prize Gala, but like most events this year, the Giller Light Bash will take place virtually. Although you won't be able to gather in person, this is still a great opportunity to connect with fellow book lovers while watching the Scotiabank Giller Prize broadcast and raising funds for this worthwhile cause.
Hosted by Jael Richardson, Between the Pages: An Evening with the Scotiabank Giller Prize Finalists will be an hour of readings, questions and answers and will take you inside the minds and creative lives of the writers on the 2020 shortlist.
