EXTERNAL: 2024 Giller Book Club

For the fourth year in a row, the Giller Foundation has paired the author of each of the 12 longlisted titles from 2023 with other Canadian authors and members of last year’s jury. During the hour-long book clubs, you’ll be part of an intimate one-on-one conversation about how the author thinks, composes his or her novel or short story collection, who inspires them and what challenges they may or may not face. You’ll have the opportunity to ask the author questions during the last 15 minutes of each discussion.

Everyone is welcome to attend the Giller Book Club at no cost via Zoom. To sign up, please visit the Giller Prize website and register. They’ll send you a reminder a week before and the day of so you don’t forget!
