André Alexis to prepare for award ceremony

It was just over a month ago that Fifteen Dogs  became the winner of the Canada Reads debate. What you may not realise is that, a month before even that, the novel won one of the richest literary accolades in the world, the Windham Campbell Prize. At the end of February calls were made to eight unsuspecting writers, who were nominated in secret, to inform them that they would be recieving $165,000 for winning. A life changing call if ever there was one.

Currently the winners are preparing for the various award ceremonies that will take place September 13-15. Fifteen Dogs by André Alexis is about fifteen dogs that are given human level awareness and follows them as they navigate life with a new perception and new feelings. The book is currently available in-store.
