Solway wins A.M. Klein Award

Our congratulations go out to David Solway, whose latest book of poetry, Reaching for Clear: The Poetry of Rhys Savarin, won this year's A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry. The award was presented last night, Wednesday, November 21, at the Quebec Writers' Federation's annual awards gala at the spectacular Lion d'or in Montreal.

Solway was up against two other worthy Montreal poets, David McGimpsey (for Sitcom, Coach House Books) and Erín Moure (for O Cadoiro, Anansi).
