The Scotiabank Giller Prize 2012 Longlist was announced this week. So I thought I'd write up a quick post about it because even though I do not read as many books from such a list, I love supporting local bookish events.
This is the 19th year for the Giller Prize and there are 13 titles on the longlist. So check them out below and let me know if you've read any of the titles. The ones I am most excited to read are The Emperor of Paris by CS Richardson and Y by Marjorie Celona.
The shortlist will be revealed on October 1st!
