Wednesday, April 18th is a big night for Crime Writers of Canada. At various cities across the country, CWC members will announce this year’s Arthur Ellis nominees in a variety of crime-writing categories.
I’ll be participating in a panel discussion before the big unveiling, along with colleagues A.J. Devlin, Judy Toews, and Iona Whishaw. Our moderator will be prolific crime writer and CWC chair, Cathy Ace. As you’ll see from the photo, we’ll be at Vancouver’s main library on Georgia Street. For other locations, please visit CWC’s website HERE.
Established in 1984, the awards are named after the nom de travail of Canada’s official hangman. (Yes, Canada once had one). The Arthur Ellis awards celebrate excellence in crime writing. Eligible books were published in 2017, with the exception of the Unhanged Author, which awards a prize to the year’s best unpublished novel.
It’ll be a fun night and I hope to see you there!
