Bill Waiser's latest book, Who Killed Jacki Bates? (Fifth House, 2008) made all of here at What's Up cry, and it seems we weren't the only ones. We cried because we were moved, and we were moved not just by the profound sadness of the story but by the skill with which Bill told it. So it comes as no surprise to us to learn that Who Killed Jacki Bates has been short-listed for three Saskatchewan Book Awards this year:

· Non-Fiction Award

· Saskatoon Award

· Book of the Year Award

See our posting of September 2nd, below, for more details relating to the book, or click here.
