Let’s all take a moment to send our heartfelt congratulations to Jan Zwicky, who has just named to the Order of Canada for “her contributions to Canadian poetry and philosophy, and for her work as an educator and editor.” (We were pleased to publish her book with Robert Moody, Vittoria Colonna, in 2014.)
