Elana Rabinovitch, Executive Director of The Giller Foundation, is delighted to announce the inaugural Giller Master Panel of 2022. The January 17 event, entitled “The Art & Craft of Book Cover Design” will feature four of the award-winning designers of last year’s Scotiabank Giller Prize-shortlisted books.
After the resounding success of last year’s Giller Book Club, the Giller Foundation is thrilled to announce the program’s return with a brand new lineup. The program will feature the authors on the 2021 longlist in conversation with notable writers, critics, past jury members, and academics.
Twenty twenty-one may go down in history as the fulcrum of new artistic expression, one where people discovered unique and creative ways of bringing arts and culture to life, all while enduring the second year of a global pandemic.
The Giller Master Panels are monthly events that celebrate a dedicated theme. These panel-led discussions launched in February 2021, just in time to honour Black History Month. The aim of these panels is to gather experts in their field who will engage the Canadian public in ongoing social, political, and cultural issues. The Giller Master Panels are hosted each month from January to July.
Launched in January 2021, The Giller Book Club is one of The Giller Foundation’s initiatives to celebrate Canadian authors year-round. In 2021, we featured the 14 longlisted authors and books from 2020. These 60-minute discussions uniquely paired the longlisted authors with Canadian icons, other writers, journalists, reviewers, presidents of publishing houses, and artistic figures as interviewers.
We want to make sure you have something great to read this holiday season. For the third year, we are excited to give away the entire 2021 Scotiabank Giller Prize longlist to 12 lucky winners! From December 1, 2021, to December 12, 2021, we will be giving away one book each day.
