The Red word : a novel
By Sarah Henstra
The Red Word is a campus novel like no other. As her sophomore year begins, Karen enters into the back-to-school revelry — particularly at a fraternity called GBC. When she wakes up one morning on the lawn of Raghurst, a house of radical feminists, she gets a crash course in the state of feminist activism on campus. The Red Word is this year’s Governor General’s Fiction Award winner.
Dear Evelyn : a novel
By Kathy Page
Twisting and startling, harrowing and deeply tender, Dear Evelyn explores how two very different people come together to shape and reshape each other over a lifetime. It is a compelling and unconventional love story that will leave its mark on any reader who has ever loved. Dear Evelyn is this year’s winner of the Rogers Writers’ Trust Fiction Prize.
