The Scotiabank Giller Prize is dedicated to celebrating the best in Canadian fiction each year and to bringing these books to the attention of all Canadians.
 
Hosted by CBC's Rick Mercer, the Scotiabank Giller Prize Gala will bring together the worlds of literature, music, celebrity, art and dance in a spectacular black-tie awards ceremony to be broadcast on Monday, November 10th at 9:00 p.m.(10:00 p.m./10:30 p.m. NT). The award-winning jury for the 2014 prize is comprised of Canadian author Shauna Singh Baldwin (The Selector of Souls), British novelist Justin Cartwright (Other People's Money) and American writer Francine Prose (Lovers at the Chameleon Club: Paris, 1932). The ceremony will be live streamed at CBCBooks.ca with a concurrent live chat, enabling Canadians across the country to be part of the Giller experience. 

The Scotiabank Giller Prize strives to highlight the very best in Canadian fiction year after year. Beginning in 2014, the prize will award $100,000 annually to the author of the best Canadian novel or short story collection published in English, and $10,000 to each of the finalists. The award is named in honour of the late literary journalist Doris Giller and was founded in 1994 by her husband, Toronto businessman Jack Rabinovitch.
