The Atlantic Book Awards Society is excited to soon present the outstanding books shortlisted for the 2022 Atlantic Book Awards. 

The nominees for this year’s 12 book prizes will be announced during the Frye Festival’s event Spotlight on Atlantic Authors, an evening of readings celebrating great Atlantic Canadian writing from the past year. The event takes place at Bernard-LeBlanc Hall in Moncton, NB on Friday, April 22 at 8 p.m. 

You will be able to find the complete shortlist online here as well as on Facebook and Twitter, where you can stay up-to-date on the Atlantic Book Awards Festival events. 

We look forward to celebrating the Atlantic region’s literary excellence. We hope you can join us online and in-person for this year’s festival and awards from June 2- 9, 2022. Stay tuned for more information on this year’s festival programming.
