Audible Canada is giving away 10 of Canada’s acclaimed Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning audiobooks for free. They will be available on the platform until June 28th, which should give you all enough time to consume them all.

Rohinton Mistry’s A Fine Balance, Alice Munro’s Runaway, Joseph Boyden’s Through Black Spruce, Johanna Skibsrud’s The Sentimentalists, Will Ferguson’s 419, Lynn Coady’s Hellgoing, Sean Michaels’ Us Conductors and André Alexis’ Fifteen Dogs are also available to download.
“With increased time at home, we know that many Canadians are looking for ways to be informed, inspired and entertained. That was our motivation to provide this access to Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning content,” adds Georgia Knox, Canada Country Manager for Audible. “On Audible.ca we want to celebrate the creativity of the Canadian authors who spark joy and intrigue amongst all of us with their writing. We’re excited to be working with Scotiabank to make some of these masterpieces available for all Canadians to enjoy.”

During this difficult time, it’s more important than ever to fire our imaginations with truly compelling books by some of Canada’s finest storytellers.”
