The Toronto Star reports that Griffin Poetry Prize-winner Karen Solie is having a banner year.

The Saskatchewan-bred, Toronto-based poet has added Ontario’s $10,000 Trillium Book Award for Poetry to the $75,000 she earned earlier this month as the Canadian winner of the Griffin Poetry Prize. She won both awards for Pigeon, her third collection of poems.
