Moccasin Square Gardens by storyteller and bestselling author Richard Van Camp has won the 2020 Alberta Literary Awards’ Georges Bugnet Award for Fiction.
Moccasin Square Gardens is a set of stories described as “his boldest, most compelling collection yet.” The stories are fun and accessible on the surface, yet deeply layered and complex in their aesthetic structure, reads a quote from the awards’ jury.
“This collection is enthralling, exciting, and wholly original – this is a vital book.”
Van Camp is a master at equally balancing the comic, the tragic, the speculative, the fantastic and the real, the statement continues.
Richard Van Camp is an internationally renowned and award-winning author. He was born in Fort Smith, Northwest Territories, and is a member of the Dogrib Dene Nation.
