TORONTO – Charles Foran, author of 11 books in Toronto, won a prize funded by $ 50,000.
The scholarship was awarded to a promising writer to reduce the financial burden and allow as much creative freedom as possible.
Foran was admitted in 2018 on Tuesday evening at a black-tie gala at The Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto, an event that will raise over $ 250,000 to support the Writers & # 39; Trust.
This is the latest literary work for Forana, whose praise includes the Hilary Weston Literary Literary Award for Non-fiction Literature, the Charles Taylor Prize and the Governor General's Literary Award.
A member of the Order of Canada swept in 2011 in the circulation of books for his biography "Mordecai: The Life & Times" on the literary provocateur of Montreal Mordecai Richler.
Forana's bibliography also includes a book of literature and travels, a novel "Planet Lolita" about puberty in the digital era and "The Last House of Ulster", a non-fictional account of a family in a war-torn Northern Ireland.
In his rationale, the Writers & # 39; Trust hailed Foran as "an indispensable voice in Canadian literature, a masterly storyteller who helped us to understand ourselves and the world around us, one book, one essay, one campaign at a time."
