Claire Mackay 1930-2013
CANSCAIP is deeply saddened to have lost one of our founding members, Claire Mackay.
Claire co-founded CANSCAIP in 1976 and was an integral part of the growth and professionalization of Canadian children's literature. She was a mentor with a brilliant sense of humour to many other writers in addition to being admired by her thousands of readers.
She will be missed by her husband, Jack, her three sons, her daughter-in-laws, her grandchildren, and by CANSCAIP and the Canadian children's literature community at large.
