Saanich’s David Giblin will be among the authors honoured at Saturday’s Cedric Literary Awards gala.
The Cedric Literary Awards writing competition was created to recognize unpublished English and French-speaking authors of fiction, creative non-fiction and poetry, as well as First Nations writing, from across British Columbia, over the age of 50.
Giblin is among the authors shortlisted in the creative nonfiction category for his book Strange Karma for the French Petty Nobility.
The gala takes place Saturday at 4 p.m. at the Oswego Hotel in Victoria. Four winners will each be presented with a $3,000 cheque for their work in fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry and First Nations writing.
