Pick of the Day (Tomorrow Edition): Saskatchewan Book Awards

This is the 19th edition of the Saskatchewan Book Awards. Traditionally, they’ve been held in late November. This year, they’ve been moved to a new spring date. Outside of that, it looks like not much has changed. There’s still the same mix of categories celebrating various aspects of Saskatchewan literature (here’s a link to the short-list of nominees), along with a guest-speaker. This year it’s Montreal writer/editor Mark Abley (pictured) whose most recent book is the etymologically-themed Camp Fossil Eyes: Digging for the Origins of Words.

The SBAs go Saturday at Conexus Arts Centre at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are $90. For more information call 569-1585.
