Marie-Claire Blais

It has been a great sorrow for us to have learned this morning of the death yesterday of writer, novelist, poet, and playwright Marie-Claire Blais, CC OQ MSRC. Ms. Blais served on the jury which awarded Elizabeth Bishop the Neustadt International Prize for Literature in 1976, and was a keynote speaker at the University of King's College 2011 conference "It Must Be Nova Scotia," held during The Elizabeth Bishop Centenary celebrations.
