Enter UFV Library and Chilliwack Scotiabank’s Guess the Giller contest.


Guess the Giller and you could win a copy of one of the shortlisted books from Chilliwack Scotiabank and UFV Library.
The Scotiabank Gillier is Canada's premier literary prize. Founded in 1994 to honour journalist Doris Giller, the Giller prize teamed up with Scotiabank in 2005. The prize is now worth $70,000 to the winning author. Past winners have included Will Ferguson for 419, Esi Edugyan for Half-Bood Blues, Johanna Skibsrud for The Sentimentalists, Linden MacIntyre for The Bishop's Man, Joseph Boyden for Through Black Spruce and Elizabeth Hay for Late Nights on Air. This year's Giller prize will be awarded November 5 in Toronto.

We're giving away one copy each of the short-listed books to members of the UFV community who guess the Giller.

Nominees this year:

Lisa Moore for Caught


Dan Vyleta for Crooked Maid


Craig Davidson for Cataract City


Dennis Bock for Going Home Again

Enter by paper ballot in the library or this online survey by Monday, November 4. Correct answers are not necessary. Prizes will be awarded by random draw.
