Isabel Huggan wins Charles Taylor Award

In an upset victory, personal memoir Belonging: Home Away from Home beat out Margaret MacMillan's much-acclaimed Paris 1919: Six Months that Changed the World, a history of the Treaty of Versailles, for the Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction. The $25,000 prize was awarded yesterday at the Windsor Arms Hotel in Toronto.

Huggans' "Belonging" was one of my recommended readings in the fall of 2003.
Title: Belonging
Author: Isabel Huggan (2003)
Her stories in 'First Impressions' certainly made an impression on me and this memoir did not disappoint.
