MEET THE JURY FOR THE 2020 RBC TAYLOR PRIZE

2020 jury

THE TRUSTEES OF CHARLES TAYLOR FOUNDATION The Trustees of the Charles Taylor Foundation are pleased to announce that the jurors for the 2020 RBC Taylor Prize are: Margaret Atwood, Coral Ann Howells and Peter Theroux. All have been hard at work reading, since submissions opened last June.
     Noreen Taylor, Prize Founder and Chair of the Charles Taylor Foundation, remarked: “I am particularly thrilled to have Margaret Atwood on the jury for the 20th anniversary of the Prize, as she and her late partner, the dearly missed Graeme Gibson, were two of the first people I turned to when founding the prize. Joining her, Coral Ann returns as a juror, and as a British professor of Canadian Literature, brings an “offshore” perspective to the books submitted. Peter’s travels and writings, in so many ways similar to Charles’, bring a journalistic eye to the process. Our esteemed jurors will read well over 130 submissions and deliberate over which books to include in December’s longlist for the 2020 RBC Taylor Prize.”
     The Longlist will be shared on Wednesday, December 4, 2019; the Shortlist will be announced at a news conference on Wednesday, January 8, 2020; and the winner revealed at a gala luncheon on Monday March 2, 2020..
