Westwood Creative Artists is thrilled to announce that Charles Foran’s best-selling biography Mordecai: The Life & Times (Knopf Canada), was named winner of the Hilary Weston Writers’ Trust Prize for Non-Fiction Tuesday evening, the richest annual literary award for a nonfiction book published in Canada.
Mordecai: The Life & Times won the Charles Taylor Prize for Literary Non-Fiction earlier this year and is in the running for the Governor General’s Literary Award for non-fiction, to be announced Nov. 15.
The Writers’ Trust prize was awarded by the Hon. Hilary M. Weston in Toronto’s Koerner Hall, in the Telus Centre for Performance and Learning.
The jury citation referred to Foran’s book as “an epic work of scholarship and energy … inclusive, intelligent … yet laced with the underlying perfume of tragedy … well written, exciting to read, even-handed, and magisterial.”
Foran is represented at WCA by Jackie Kaiser.
