Linden McIntyre speaks with Shelagh Rogers in front of a live audience in Burlington, Ontario, about his novel, The Bishop's Man, winner of this year's Giller Prize. It's a story about the Catholic church, about Cape Breton, and about a priest coping with a sexual abuse scandal.

Stuart Woods of Quill & Quire magazine helps us sort out the differences between the fall season's various book prizes, as we announce our shortlist for a new prize: The Next Chapter Award for Best Literary Award.
