Flanker Press recognizes the 3 winners of the NL Reads Competition

12 Apr
2021

Flanker Press would like to honour and recognize the 3 winning titles of the NL Reads Competition for 2018, 2020 and 2021 and the authors.

The winning titles and authors are as follows:

The Last Beothuk by Gary Collins - 2018

The Sign on My Father's House by Tom Moore - 2020

The Woman in the Attic by Emily Hepditch - 2021

NL Reads is a celebration of Newfoundland and Labrador books, authors and readers. It is our provincial “Battle of the Books,” inspired by CBC’s popular annual literary event Canada Reads. Over four months, four new local books compete for the title of Newfoundland and Labrador’s “must-read” book of the year, as determined by the reading public of our province.

Thanks to a generous sponsor, since 2019 the author of the winning title also receives a cash prize: the Margaret Duley Award.
