Alternate Title/Autre Titre:
CNIB Talking Book of the Year

The TORGIs celebrate excellence in writing, narration, and production of audio books for blind, visually impaired, and print disabled readers. Originally called the CNIB Talking Book of the Year, the awards were renamed for Morley Torgov, their first recipient. The Tiny TORGIs, introduced in 1994, further recognize excellence in Canadian children's literature. The winners are picked by readers. Each recipient receives an audio recording of their winning book and a tactile print produced by the CNIB Library.
