Our Penguin Random House Canada colleagues are basking in the joy of the announcement that Souvankham Thammavongsa’s short story collection, How to Pronounce Knife, edited by Anita Chong and published by McClelland & Stewart, has been named to the shortlist for the 2020 Scotiabank Giller Prize, Canada’s most prestigious yearly literary award for fiction.
All five finalists will take part in a virtual edition of the Giller’s traditional Between the Pages event, an hour of readings, questions, and answers on the Giller social media channels and website on November 2. This year’s winner will be announced on November 9 at a virtual gala event that will air on CBCBooks.ca.
