11 Remembering Ellen Seligman

British Columbia
Jared Bland
Tuesday, October 18, 2016 - 6:00pm to 7:15pm
Revue Stage

Even in Ellen Seligman’s final weeks before her death in March, she was editing the novels of Michael Helm and Steven Price. Exacting, meticulous, demanding and “a gift to good writing,” Seligman edited some of the most prominent authors Canada’s ever produced—Margaret Atwood, Leonard Cohen, Rohinton Mistry, Michael Ondaatje, Jane Urquhart, Guy Vanderhaeghe, Elizabeth Hay and so many more. Books she edited won 23 Governor-General’s awards, four Man Booker Prizes and six Gillers. Three authors who spent hours on the phone with her, going over their manuscripts line by line, talk about this consummate editor’s influence, her process, her ferocious devotion to quality—and the difference Seligman made to their work and words.
