Jury Citation

Angela Sterritt’s Unbroken is a masterclass in investigative journalism. Weaving a memoir of survival on the streets together with the stories of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, Sterritt creates a book that is as necessary and urgent as it is beautiful. Infused with vulnerability and bravery, Unbroken balances intergenerational trauma with hope that is authentic, hard-earned, and very, very real. With the heart and instinct of a practiced storyteller, as well as the research skills of a seasoned reporter who leaves no stone unturned, Sterritt offers her own story as a light that shines on one of the darkest ongoing episodes in modern Canadian history.
