Short List Named for Tenth Annual BC National Non-Fiction Award

"This year's shortlisted books feature superlative writing and explore issues that extend beyond Canada to the world as a whole," said Mitchell. "They represent an excellent selection of non-fiction books, and we thank the jury for their work in narrowing the field of 141 books nominated for this year's prize to these finalists."

The shortlist was chosen by jury members Jared Bland, books editor at The Globe and Mail; Daphne Bramham, a columnist for The Vancouver Sun and a critically acclaimed author; and Anna Porter, an award-winning novelist, non-fiction writer, and one of Canada's most respected publishers.

The jury will announce the winner of the prize at a special presentation ceremony in Vancouver on February 21, 2014.
