George Woodcock Lifetime Achievement Award
The GEORGE WOODCOCK LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD annually honours an outstanding literary career in British Columbia. Since 1994, the City of Vancouver (Mayor of Vancouver's office), the Vancouver Public Library, and a non-profit society (Pacific BookWorld News Society, founded in 1988) have been working in partnership to jointly sponsor and present an annual prize to a senior B.C. author. Find out more about the George Woodcock Lifetime Achievement Award here.
