Author Eden Robinson has added yet another literary award for her work.
The Kitamaat Village resident is the recipient of the $50,000 2017 Writers’ Trust of Canada Fellowship.
“I’m deeply honoured and humbled to be chosen for the third Writers’ Trust Fellowship,” said Robinson. “The jury’s faith in my career means the world to me and I plan to take this opportunity to write my heart out. Much gratitude and love.”
Robinson’s latest novel Son of a Trickster has been shortlisted for this year’s Scotiabank Giller Prize.
Her first novel, Monkey Beach, was shortlisted for the Giller Prize and a Governor General’s Literary Award, and received the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize.
