THE WINNER OF the 2019 RBC Taylor Prize is Kate Harris (Atlin, BC) for her book Lands of Lost Borders: Out of Bounds on the Silk Road, published by Knopf Canada.
     The $30,000 award was announced today by Prize founder and Chair Noreen Taylor during a gala luncheon celebrating this year’s finalists at the Omni King Edward Hotel in downtown Toronto.
     Noreen Taylor, prize founder and chair of the Charles Taylor Foundation expressed her delight, stating: “In an increasingly complex and volatile time, Kate Harris chose to look beyond the challenges of the here-and-now, and instead, remind us to care for one another, to care about the world we live in and to care about what makes living most rewarding. It is a much-needed message, superbly told. Congratulations!.”
     Vijay Parmar, president of RBC PH&N Investment Counsel, added: On behalf of RBC Wealth Management, congratulations to Kate Harris on achieving this distinguished honour. We are proud of our partnership with the Charles Taylor Foundation and its continued efforts to support Canadian non-fiction writers, providing a platform to showcase their exceptional talent and advance their careers.
