In light of the ongoing COVID-19 emergency, the board of the Atlantic Book Awards Society has decided to postpone the 2020 Atlantic Book Festival and Awards Gala initially planned for May, 2020.
While pandemic-related disruptions are likely to continue for some time, we are now planning to announce our shortlist in late June or early July and to hold the festival and gala in late fall, if possible. We will keep you posted. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Stay well, and enjoy the comfort and wisdom of a good book—a good Atlantic Canadian book—during these challenging times.
