Zarowny wins Kurtenbach Peace Pen Award

02/17/2016

QUALICUM BEACH, BC — Yvonne Zarowny from Qualicum Beach, B.C., has been selected by an independent panel as the recipient of the 2015 Leo Kurtenbach Award presented to a contributor to Letters to the Editor of the Prairie Messenger.

Relevant, well resourced and challenging are some of the words used to describe Zarowny’s winning letter for 2015. Her letter, titled “ISIS responding to corporate capitalism’s equally nasty war,” drew the attention of the panel as one presenting a fuller story of the ISIS crisis and what may offer potential for more peaceful solutions.

Zarowny has received the third Peace Pen Award which was established honouring Leo Kurtenbach, now 96, avid reader and researcher, dedicated and influential writer for peace.
