On Tuesday October 7th, Christopher Levenson author of Night Vision was shortlisted for the 2014 Governor General’s Literary Awards for achievement in poetry. Quattro Books is very grateful to the Canada Council for the Arts for this nomination.
This nomination is a great honour, both for Chris and for a small press like ours. A tremendous amount of work goes into each book, so the recognition means that much more. Quattro Books congratulates Chris on this important accomplishment.
We also want to congratulate:
*Sadiqa de Meijer, for Leaving Howe Island and Oolichan Books
*Julie Joosten, for Light Light and BookThug
*Garth Martens, for Prologue for the Age of Consequence and House of Anansi Press
*Arleen Paré, for Lake of Two Mountains and Brick Books
A great deal of passion and care is involved in all of our press’s operations. We could not function without the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, so once again, a huge thank you to them. Their support, along with that of numerous arts organizations and granting bodies, makes this work possible.
We hope you’ll join us in cheering Chris on and be sure to check back on November 18th for the digital announcement of the winners!
