Three Canadians are among five award-winning authors and playwrights that will make up this year’s Scotiabank Giller Prize jury.
Playwright Jose Teodoro, author Donna Bailey Nurse and author Randy Boyagoda will help decide who makes the long and short list for the prestigious literary award before a winner is chosen in November.
Also on the panel are Scottish-Sierra Leonean author Aminatta Forna and Bosnian-American author Aleksander (Sasha) Hemon.
The winner of the Scotiabank Giller Prize will receive $100,000.
