On Nov. 8, Canadian fiction fans will find out which book will win this year's prestigious Scotiabank Giller Prize. CBC will be livestreaming the glitzy gala in Toronto, hosted by Jian Ghomeshi, as well as live-blogging from the exclusive event.
But that's not all! On the same evening, Canadian literacy organization Frontier College will be hosting its annual Scotiabank Giller Light bashes across the country. Authors, publishers and book lovers will gather to watch a broadcast of the awards ceremony, take part in fun contests and raise money for Frontier's literacy programs. There will also be food, drinks and lots of giveaways!
We want you to join the party! Frontier College is giving away pairs of tickets to its bashes in Toronto, Calgary, Halifax and Vancouver.
If you're in one of these areas and would like to attend, enter our Scotiabank Giller Light Bash draw.
Just send an email with your name, location and contact information with the subject heading "Giller Light Bash draw" to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You have until Thursday, Nov. 3, at midnight ET to enter. We'll draw one prize winner (for two tickets) in each location Friday, Nov. 4.
