Awards: Edna Staebler Creative Fiction Winner

Ann Hui won the C$10,000 (about US$7,540) Edna Staebler Award for Creative Nonfiction for her book Chop Suey Nation: The Legion Cafe and Other Stories from Canada's Chinese Restaurants, Quill & Quire reported. Granted annually by Wilfrid Laurier University, the prize "encourages and recognizes Canadian writers for a first or second work of creative nonfiction that includes a Canadian locale and/or significance." 

Bruce Gillespie, one of the judges, called the winning book "a fantastic example of the kind of high-caliber creative nonfiction that Canadian writers are creating today, and it will appeal to a wide range of readers, as it's part road trip, part food history and part family memoir."
