The holidays have come early for non-fiction lovers, political junkies and policy wonks, with the release of the 2015 Speaker's Book Award shortlist. Presented by Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario Dave Levac, the Speaker’s Book Award aims to bring awareness to books written by Ontarians covering historical, regional, cultural, or parliamentary aspects of the province.

The award, now in its fourth year, gives special consideration to works focusing on Ontario’s parliamentary heritage and on provincial political discourse.

André Alexis Wins Scotiabank Giller Prize for His Modern Fable, Fifteen Dogs

After unveiling a longlist that heavily featured small press and short story titles (two categories that have been traditionally unlucky on the book prize circuit), the Scotiabank Giller Prize announced its 2015 winner at a gala dinner in Toronto tonight: Fifteen Dogs (Coach House Books) by André Alexis. Hosted by Rick Mercer, the award ceremony was broadcast on CBC Television.

It's an exciting win, as Alexis already scooped up the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize just last week, making Fifteen Dogs the undisputed book of the year.
