Kydd's Emily Via the Greyhound Bus, published by Thistledown Press, is up for a First Book Award; Wilson's In the Temple of the Rain God, published by CPRC Press, is a contender in three categories: Non-Fiction Award, Regina Book Award, and the Publishing Award.
A third short-listed author, Heather Smith (Hansen-Ross Pottery, Moose Jaw Museum and Art Gallery), was snow-bound elsewhere; Todd read an excerpt of her work, which is also in the running for the Publishing Award.
The Awards will be held in Regina, September 27, 2013. For tickets and information, visit the Saskatchewan Book Awards site.
