UPDATE: This contest is now closed.

Richard Van Camp is one of Canada's best storytellers; he's penned everything from North of 60 episodes to short story collections to baby books. His short stories have been turned into CBC Radio dramas and most recently, his first novel, The Lesser Blessed, was adapted into a feature film.

We have five prize packs to give away, consisting of signed copies of The Lesser Blessed and two passes to see the film anywhere the movie is playing in Canada.

To enter tweet @cbcbooks or leave a comment below with the name of Richard's new collection of short stories (hint: it recently won the 2013 Georges Bugnet Award for Fiction at the Alberta Literary Awards) by 11:59 p.m. ET on Friday, May 31. CBC contest rules apply.

Richard will be Shelagh Rogers' guest on the June 10 episode of The Next Chapter, so be sure to tune in!

Check out the movie trailer for The Lesser Blessed below. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2012 to much critical acclaim. It opens in Toronto on Friday, May 31, and in Montreal, Ottawa, Winnipeg and Edmonton on Friday, June 7.
