The 2016 Awards Ceremony was a huge success, with over 350 people attending, including the Lieutenant Governor and Minister Ralph Goodale. MC Dawn Dumont kept everyone in stitches throughout the evening, and our featured entertainment, Andino Suns, rocked the stage. The big winners of the night were Connie Gault, Cassidy McFadzean, and the University of Regina Press, who took home two awards each. It was another banner year for Indigenous authors and books—six of the thirteen awards went to books by or about Indigenous peoples. SBA is extremely proud to play a part in the successes of Saskatchewan authors and publishers. The Awards Ceremony solidifies everyone’s pride in our authors and publishers, who create such wonderful and important books every year.
We look forward to celebrating with you again next year. On Saturday, April 29, 2017, experience the 24th Saskatchewan Book Awards Ceremony at Conexus Arts Centre in Regina. Check back for more information about our host and featured entertainment.
Tickets go on sale in February 2017.
