The winners of this year's Manitoba Book Awards were announced at a gala this Saturday, April 30th.

2015 and 2016 saw plenty of wonderful new Manitoba literature, and competition was fierce for this year's awards. Congratulations to all of the recipients, as well as those who made it onto the shortlist.

Of particular note are the recipients of the 2016 McNally Robinson Book Awards. Writer Julia Schettler and illustrator Sarah Neville won the McNally Robinson Books for Young People Award in the "younger" category for their book Fur Is Only Fur Deep, and in the "older" category the award went to Jodi Carmichael for her novel, Forever Julia. Meanwhile, the McNally Robinson Book of the Year Award went to Wab Kinew for his memoir, The Reason You Walk.
