About the Giller Book Club

Launched in January 2021, the Giller Book Club is one of the Giller Foundation’s initiatives to celebrate Canadian authors year-round. The Giller Book Club celebrates and highlights the books from the previous year’s longlist. The 60-minute discussions uniquely pair the longlisted authors with Canadian icons, other writers, journalists, reviewers, presidents of publishing houses, and artistic figures as interviewers. The Giller Book Club brings all of this homegrown talent into the homes of Canadians and people around the world and invites them into the conversation by allowing attendees to ask the author questions.

All of the book club conversations are recorded and available on the Scotiabank Giller Prize’s YouTube channel and website.

The line-up for 2023 the Giller Book Club will be available in the new year. From January to June 2023, we will be featuring the books from the 2022 Scotiabank Giller Prize longlist and invite you to read along with us!
