Riverbones shortlisted for the Edna Staebler

The Riverbones has been shortlisted for the 2009 Edna Staebler Award for Creative Non-Fiction. Affectionately known as the "Edna" among those in the know, the $10,000 award focuses on literary, as opposed to purely journalistic, endeavours. Three cheers for that. (And my friend Wayson Choy is a past-winner... oh, to be included in such company...) Check out the amazing shortlist here.
