Exciting News!

Louis’ next novel, The Kawai Scrolls, has won the 2017 Whistler Independent Book Prize manuscript competition!

Get ready – the book will launch in October at the Whistler Writers Festival.

Here is the official notification text:

Manuscript Competition Winner

Whistler Independent Book Prize Tidewater Festivals and the Whistler Writing Society are pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 Whistler Independent Book Prize manuscript competition. The judges were Byrna Barclay and Miji Campbell.

First Prize: The Kawai Scrolls, by Louis Druehl

“This is a rollicking, rich and ribald tale . . . The dialogue is brilliant, the writing accomplished and the plot events are far-flung, far-fetched and far-out.”
“The strength of this manuscript is the gorgeous writing! Druehl’s use of specific details central to the landscape and Japanese culture is masterful.”
