25th Trillium Award

PurdyFest to celebrate the life of Milton Acorn

Share |

Purdy Country Literary Festival (PurdyFest) will be honouring Milton Acorn at its 6th annual festival this summer.

The festival’s symposium will highlight Acorn’s work and life. Festival organizers are hoping Acorn’s sisters, Mary and Kay, and his brother Robert, will be attending and presenting at “Acorn Fest!”

This year is the 50th anniversary of Acorn’s hand in organizing the Free Speech Movement in Toronto. Mosaic Press is releasing In a Springtime Instant, a new selection of Acorn's work, with a forward and introduction by James Deahl and Terry Barker.
