Peter Robinson Wins 2010 IFOA Harbourfront Festival Prize

International Festival of Authors 2010

In a press release yesterday, the International Festival of Authors (IFOA) announced this year’s $10,000 Harbourfront Festival Prize winner to be crime novelist Peter Robinson. The decision was based on the merits of his own published work and the time he has invested in nurturing the next generation of literary talent.

"I am honoured to be awarded the 2010 Harbourfront Festival Prize. Having looked at the list of previous recipients, I believe it is a privilege to be in such august company and I find it incredibly encouraging that the committee has chosen to recognize crime fiction in this way," Robinson said.

The International Festival of Authors takes place from October 20-30, 2010 in Toronto. The prize will be presented to Peter Robinson on the closing night at 8 PM in the Fleck Dance Theatre.
