T otally unexpected! Dragon Springs Road has been longlisted for the 2019 International Dublin Literary Award (the award formerly known as the IMPAC). So proud to be nominated for this award alongside other wonderful Canadians. I know it's an international award, but we Canadians like to stick together.
The nomination criteria for this award makes it a much-cherished one by authors because books get on the list thanks to librarians who love them. And for authors, librarians are heroes. Saints. Just to be on this list is happy-makingHere is the full list of nominated books, because your TBR stack is not tall enough. And here is the piece focusing on Canadian titles nominated.
