Governor General's Literary Awards Gala: A Smashing Success!

Last Friday, we were thrilled to host three of Canada’s favourite poets in Patrick Lane, Lorna Crozier, and Katherena Vermette at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. These three previous winners of the Governor General’s Literary Awards delighted our audiences with their writing and charm. Festival Director Charlene Diehl led the conversation afterward, as they shared their views on poetry and it's place in the world. A wonderful night all around! 

Weren’t able to make it down? Don’t worry! Video recording of the event will be up on our website soon.

This event was organized in collaboration with the Canada Council for the Arts to mark the 2013 edition of the Governor General’s Literary Awards.
