The RBC Taylor Prize for 2019 was awarded in early March at a swanky lunch in Toronto.
Come on into the ballroom with me, and listen to Noreen Taylor describe the very beginnings of the prize. You'll also hear a former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Canada introducing Kate Harris, who wrote "Lands of Lost Borders: Out of Bounds on the Silk Road."
Kate Harris is this year's winner of the RBC Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction.
