Books on long-term care, economic structural changes among Donner Prize nominees

TORONTO — This year’s Donner Prize short list includes books on topics including the crisis in long-term care and economic structural changes.

Organizers named five finalists on Tuesday for the $50,000 award for the best public policy book by a Canadian.

Columnist André Picard is in the running for his book “Neglected No More: The Urgent Need to Improve the Lives of Canada’s Elders in the Wake of a Pandemic.”

Mark Carney, the former governor of the Bank of Canada, is nominated for “Value(s): Building a Better World for All,” while consultant Carol Anne Hilton earned a nod for “Indigenomics: Taking a Seat at the Economic Table.”

Rounding out the short list are Carleton University associate professor Stephanie Carvin’s “Stand On Guard: Reassessing Threats to Canada’s National Security” and “Innovation in Real Places: Strategies for Prosperity in an Unforgiving World” by Dan Breznitz, chair of innovation studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy.

The award will be handed out at a gala dinner in Toronto on May 31.
