For the second year in a row, Jian will host The Scotiabank Giller Prize Gala evening.
The Gala celebrating the shortlist nominees, will be held at The Ritz-Carlton Hotel in downtown Toronto on October 30th. The Gillers will also air on CBC Television at 9:00 p.m./9.30 NT.
The Giller Prize was founded in 1994 by Jack Rabinovitch in honour of his late wife, literary journalist Doris Giller, who passed away from cancer the year before. The award recognized excellence in Canadian fiction – long format or short stories – and endowed a cash prize annually of $25,000.00, the largest purse for literature in the country.
