2011 is ending with the same kind of excitement it started with as far as Bad Animals is concerned. It's on the longlist for The Charles Taylor Prize. The announcement of the shortlist will be January 10th so stay tuned. This in addition to its being shortlisted for the B.C. National Award for Canadian Nonfiction and its winning the Mavis Gallant Nonfiction Prize. It's been a lot of fun so far.
