WT Awards winners 2015 Cr Tom Sandler

The 2015 Writers’ Trust Awards, a celebration of the year’s best books and Canada’s supreme literary talents, took place on November 3 at CBC's Glenn Gould Studio. One of Canada’s richest awards nights, the evening features the presentation of six literary prizes and $139,000, including the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize.

The evening was hosted by author and journalist Elizabeth Renzetti. A national columnist with The Globe and Mail, Renzetti published her first novel, Based on a True Story, with House of Anansi Press last year.

The Writers’ Trust Awards are made possible through generous support from corporate, foundation, and individual sponsors.
