Announcing 2017 Leacock Medal longlist

The longlist for the 2017 Leacock Medal (in alphabetical order by author surname) is:

There are 11 instead of 10 because two of the books tied in the judges’ marks.

This year’s longlist will be narrowed down to a shortlist of three Leacock Medal finalists, who will be announced in Orillia on Wednesday, May 3, 2017.

The winner of the Leacock Medal and accompanying $15,000 prize will be announced at a gala dinner celebrating all three shortlisted authors June 10, 2017, at Geneva Park Conference Centre near Orillia, Ontario.
