Congratulations to Toronto Book Awards finalist James Maskalyk! In his nominated book Life on the Ground Floor the author draws upon his experience treating patients in emergency rooms across the globe. The judges said, “Dr. Maskalyk has a gift for distilling a pivotal life moment into almost painful clarity, capturing heartbeats of intermingled triumph and tragedy from a career that spans decades and continents.”
The 2017 Awards will be handed out October 12 at the Toronto Reference Library’s Bram and Bluma Appel Salon.
