Harold Horwood

HAROLD HORWOOD combined a literary ambition with early experience as a labour union organizer and a close collaborator of Newfoundland's first premier Joey Smallwood in the campaign for Confederation. He later became an author, and with his organizing experience was the natural choice as founding vice-chair of The Writers' Union of Canada and later chair, 1980-81. He was the author 24 books in total; five fiction, many types of non-fiction, and one poetry anthology. He was appointed to the Order of Canada in 1980.

Farley Mowat

Farley Mowat (1921–2014) was born in Belleville, Ontario. He spent much of his youth in Saskatoon, and lived in Ontario, Cape Breton and Newfoundland, while travelling frequently to Canada’s far north. Throughout, Mowat remained a determined environmentalist, despairing at the ceaseless work of human cruelty. Yet his ability to capture the tragic comedy of human life on earth has made him a national treasure in Canada, and a beloved storyteller to readers around the world. Over his internationally-celebrated career, he wrote 44 books include People of the Deer, The Dog Who Wouldn't Be, Sea of Slaughter, and The Boat Who Wouldn’t Float.
