Nason - All the things We Leave BehindWe’re excited for New Brunswick Book Awards Finalist Riel Nason! All the Things We Leave Behind, nominated in the category of fiction, takes place in 1977 and follows seventeen-year-old Violet whose brother has disappeared, leaving home without warning.

Now in its second year, the program celebrates books published in the four categories: poetry (sponsored by The Fiddlehead), fiction, non-fiction, and children’s writing (picture books). The competition is open to traditionally published and self-published authors who have lived in the province for three of the last five years, including the award year.
