TWO Brandon authors are among the nominees for the 2011 John W. Dafoe Book Prize.
Reinhold Kramer and Tom Mitchell's take on the 1919 Winnipeg General Strike, When the State Trembled, is one of five titles on the shortlist, the Dafoe Prize committee announced this week.
The Madman and the Butcher by Tim Cook, Polar Imperative by Shelagh Grant, A Knight in Politics by Carmen Miller and Our Man in Tehran by Robert Wright round out the list.
The winner of the $10,000 prize, which recognizes excellence in non-fiction about Canadian public affairs, will be announced in May.
The Winnipeg-based prize is named in honour of the Free Press's editor in the first half of the 20th century.
Last year's winner was marine historian Sean T. Cadigan's Newfoundland and Labrador: A History.
