We are delighted to announce that two of our books are shortlisted for the City of Calgary W.O. Mitchell Book Prize!
The City of Calgary established the W.O. Mitchell Book Prize in honour of the late Calgary writer to recognize literary achievement by local authors.
It is one of 17 prizes presented at the Calgary Awards, established in 1994, to celebrate and recognize outstanding achievements and contributions in the city.
The $5000 prize is awarded each year for an outstanding book published in that year.

Joanne Arnott interviews Wanda John-Kehewin about her new book In the Dog House:
I can’t really say there were many poets of the past that influenced my writing. I think when I really started to be inspired was when I heard that there were other Native writers, and that wasn’t until I moved to the West Coast in 1991. For some reason I didn’t think it was actually something an “Indian” could do. There weren’t any books in the library that were by First Nations people when I was growing up.
