Awards: Griffin Poetry Winners; Tonys

Debths by Susan Howe and This Wound Is a World by Billy-Ray Belcourt were the international and Canadian category winners respectively of the 2018 Griffin Poetry Prize, which honors "first edition books of poetry written in, or translated into, English and submitted from anywhere in the world." They each receive C$65,000 (about US$50,020). Romanian poet Ana Blandiana was this year's Griffin Trust for Excellence in Poetry's Lifetime Recognition Award recipient.


At the Tony Awards last night, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child won six awards: best play; best direction of a play (John Tiffany); best scenic design of a play (Christine Jones); best costume design of a play (Katrina Lindsay); best lighting design of a play (Neil Austin); and best sound design of a play (Gareth Fry).
