The Marriott Cell a 2017 BC Book Prize Finalist

The BC Book Prizes announced their 2017 shortlist today and I'm thrilled that The Marriott Cell is a finalist for the Hubert Evans Non-Fiction Award. I'm also honoured to be among an incredibly strong and accomplished field of writers including Deborah Campbell (A Disappearance in Damascus), Joy Kogawa (Gently to Nagasaki), Carmen Aguire (Mexican Hooker #1: And My Other Roles Since the Revolution) and Mark Leiren-Young (The Killer Whale Who Changed the World). The winner will be announced on April 29, 2017.
