This award is given to a member of the extended literary community who has made a significant and longstanding contribution to the development and/or dissemination of English-language literature in Quebec.
It is named for the first recipient of QWF’s Community Award in 1995, who quietly but fiercely promoted generations of Canadian writers in her long career as a bookseller at the now defunct Double Hook bookstore in Westmount, Quebec.
