Pasha Malla wins the Trillium Award!

 This year's Trillium Book Award (and the $20,000 cheque that goes along with it) was awarded to Pasha Malla, an author with strong ties to London, for his first collection of short stories, The Withdrawal Method.  Malla attended Orchard Park elementary and Banting Secondary schools in London, and still has family here.  The book also gained him the $10,000 Danuta Gleed Literary Award, which is given by the Writers' Union of Canada to the best English-language debut short story collection, and  was nominated for the Giller and Commonwealth Prizes.  He's working on his first novel, and we can't wait!!

 In the French-language category, the award went to Marguerite Andersen, for her novel Le figuier sur le toit.  Jeremy Dodds received the poetry prize for Crabwise to the Hounds, a debut collection that was also on the short list for the Griffin Poetry Prize.  That prize was captured by A.F. Moritz, for The Sentinel.

Congratulations to all the winners!
