Kate Cayley wins the Trillium Award
On Wednesday, June 17, the 2015 Ontario Trillium Book Awards were announced. Finalists included literary heavyweights Margaret Atwood and Thomas King.
I am delighted to say that the Kate Cayley was the winner of the prize for her collection of short stories, How You Were Born.
There was a brief flurry of media articles announcing the award. It is an excellent collection, definitely worthy of the prize, and I am delighted that Kate Cayley won over far more well known and established writers.
I may not be the most objective person to judge, however; Kate is my sister-in-law, and I couldn't be prouder.
Decide for yourself - buy a copy of How You Were Born from your local bookstore, borrow a copy from the library, or order it online. Reading the collection is well worth your time.
I am sure you will enjoy How You Were Born, by Kate Cayley.
