Judging the Giller Prize is no easy feat—even for 2010 Giller finalist Dr. Alexander MacLeod, a prize-winning author and Saint Mary’s professor of English and Atlantic Canada Studies. As part of his duties as a juror for the 2015 Giller Prize, Dr. MacLeod read 168 works of Canadian fiction in seven months. He also had countless Skypes, conference calls, and meetings with fellow jurors, before heading to Toronto to make the final decision.
