Giller Prize creator Jack Rabinovitch

Giller Prize creator Jack Rabinovitch was a champion of the written word

“Let’s be clear: No one is ever obligated to give their time and energy to create something as prestigious as the Giller Prize, but Jack Rabinovitch did,” said David Adams Richards, co-winner of the prize, for his novel Mercy Among the Children, in 2000. “In doing so, his spirit was revealed to all Canadians; that of a generous patron, a loyal husband and friend and a great man. I will always remember his kindness to writers from all walks of life. And writers from all walks of life benefited from his simple unaffected goodness. ”
