On Saturday, October 27, the five 2012 Scotiabank Giller Prize finalists gathered at the International Festival of Authors in Toronto. In front of a sold-out crowd, they discussed their books and their good fortune of being nominated for Canada's richest fiction prize.
As It Happens' Carol Off moderated the conversation. You can listen to the highlights in the audio player above.
All the Scotiabank Giller Prize action is on CBC Books: replay the gala, watch videos of the shortlisted authors, listen to readings from the books and more.
