Shortlist to be announced April 9/14

We are breaking with our tradition of announcing the shortlist for the Leacock Medal on April 1 — for this year only. The announcement of the top five books as selected by national judges and our reading committee will be made on April 9 at 10 a.m. at Lakehead University, Orillia, in the Learning Commons.

More time was needed to get through the entries — all 80 of them.
