Just announced, The Collected Poems of Miriam Waddington, edited with an introduction by Ruth Panofsky, received the 2016 Rosa and the late David Finestone Canadian Jewish Studies Award for Best Book in English‬ or French. This edition is the first complete collection of Waddington's poems, including previously unpublished works. Waddington was a trailblazer and the first Jewish Canadian woman to publish poetry written in English. She played a huge part in the development of modernist Canadian poetry. Many congratulations to Ruth, who worked endlessly to put out this large (more than 1100 pages!) and wonderful scholarly edition of one of Canada's most accomplished poets.
