The 2019 Leacock Medal for Humour

I thought you might be interested to know that both Eden Robinson’s Trickster Drift, and Lindsay Wong’s memoir, The Woo Woo, have just been nominated for the 2019 Leacock Medal for Humour.

Also a few other titles – including Canadian YA – which I certainly wouldn’t have though to include on a list of ‘humour’ titles, but… what do I know…

Details here in this post at the CBC.
