The Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences is happy to congratulate Sandra Djwa, winner of this year’s Governor General’s Literary Award in the English Non-Fiction category. She is recognized for her book, Journey with No Maps: A Life of P.K. Page, published by McGill-Queen’s University Press. Its publication was supported by a grant from the Federation’s Awards to Scholarly Publications Program.

The GG’s award committee had this to say about the book: “Journey with No Maps: A Life of P.K. Page by Sandra Djwa is a compelling portrait of a complex woman who pushed boundaries in both her art and her life. An insightful discussion of the power of her poetry, the book also illuminates Canada’s literary history in its formative years.”

The Awards to Scholarly Publications Program is a competitive funding program designed to assist with the publication of scholarly books on topics in the humanities and social sciences. Through this program, the Federation tangibly supports research dissemination and encourages excellence in humanities and social science scholarship.
