Runaway Wives and Rogue Feminists has been nominated for three 2018 Manitoba book awards.
I am thrilled, and grateful to the judges, the Manitoba Writers’ Guild, Fernwood Publishing and pretty much the rest of the world.
The three nominations are the Eileen McTavish award for best first book; the Alexander Kennedy Isbister for best non-fiction; and the McNally-Robinson award for Book of the Year.
I’m also really happy for my friend and former Free Press colleague Bill Redekop, who is up for three awards himself (including best non-fiction) for his outstanding book on Lake Agassiz.
