November was a big month for Canadian literature!  The Scotiabank Giller Prize, now in its 25th year, was awarded to one Canadian author for their work of fiction: Esi Edugyan, for Washington Black.  This month, Brennen takes a look not at the prize-winning novel, but rather at one of the other 12 long-listed titles: Jonny Appleseed by Joshua Whitehead.  Check out this blog post to learn more!
