THE WINNER OF the 2018 RBC Taylor Prize is Tanya Talaga (Toronto, ON) for her book Seven Fallen Feathers: Racism, Death and Hard Truths in a Northern City, published by House of Anansi Press.
     The $25,000 award was announced today by Prize founder and Chair Noreen Taylor during a gala luncheon celebrating this year’s finalists at the Omni King Edward Hotel in downtown Toronto.
     Noreen Taylor, prize founder and chair of the Charles Taylor Foundation expressed her delight, stating: “There is a self-assurance about Canada which is being expressed not only in writers’ willingness to explore the world around us but also in their willingness to pursue today’s necessary stories. These endeavours help propel us into making informed and confident choices about our future. It is these accomplishments that the RBC Taylor Prize celebrates with Seven Fallen Feathers.”
     Vijay Parmar, president of RBC PH&N Investment Counsel, added: “On behalf of RBC Wealth Management, I am delighted to congratulate Ms. Talaga on this tremendous achievement. To win the RBC Taylor Prize Award is a prestigious honour and we are proud of our partnership with the Charles Taylor Foundation in inspiring and promoting the extraordinary literary talent of our non-fiction writers from across the country.
