Vancouver-born Madeleine Thien has won this year’s Governor General’s Literary Award for fiction and will find out later today whether she’s won the Man Booker Prize when it is awarded in London.
Thien won the Canadian award and is up for the Man Booker for her novel “Do Not Say We Have Nothing”, which looks at China before during and after the Tienanmen Square uprising in 1989.
Saskatoon author Bill Waiser received the Governor General’s Literary Award in the non-fiction category for his book “A World We Have Lost; Saskatchewan Before 1905.”
Each winner receives 25-thousand dollars.
The awards will be presented at Rideau Hall in Ottawa on November 30th.
