Sharon Pollock, 1936–2021

We at Talonbooks are very sad to hear the news of Sharon Pollock’s passing at the age of 85.

A giant in the world of theatre, Pollock won the Governor General’s Award twice, and was formerly the artistic director of Theatre Calgary. She will be sorely missed, and our condolences go to her loved ones. Read more about her life and work over at the CBC.

Talonbooks is proud to be the publisher of Pollock’s play Walsh, and of Making Theatre: A Life of Sharon Pollock, by Sherrill Grace.
