Each year, the Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction is awarded to an outstanding book of non-fiction by a Canadian author, with past winners including Wayne Johnston, Carol Shields and J.B. MacKinnon. This year's shortlisted books explore a wide range of subjects, including the role of faith in American foreign policy, the life of one of Canada's foremost poets and a celebrated artist's greatest masterpiece. The $25,000 prize will be presented at a gala in Toronto on Monday, March 4.
