                 Since 2000, this prestigious national book prize has been a
                 driving force behind the growth and recognition of literary
                 non-fiction. CTP celebrates Canada's rich literary heritage,
                 and the exceptional authors who captivate us with their
                 stories. The CTP commemorates the life and work of the late
                 Charles Taylor, one of Canada's foremost essayists. This
                 privately funded Prize is presented annually to a Canadian
                 author whose book best demonstrates a superb command of the
                 English language, an elegance of style and a subtlety of
                 thought and perception. Now in its 7th year, due to the
                 growth of non-fiction the Prize has been awarded annually
                 since 2004. For more information visit:
