Ottawa, June 9, 2010 — Writers and journalists Ken McGoogan and Aline Apostolska are, respectively, the newly elected Chair and Vice-Chair of the Public Lending Right Commission (PLRC).
Both Ken McGoogan, who represents The Writers’ Union of Canada on the Commission, and Aline Apostolska, who represents the Union des écrivaines et des écrivains québécois, underlined that they will bring a perspective to PLRC discussions based on the views of the many members of their associations. The pair is well-matched to embody the spirit of inclusivity, a core value of the PLRC.
Their two-year terms will coincide with the 25th anniversary of the Commission. Throughout 2011-2012, events marking the 25th anniversary of the PLRC will celebrate Canadian literature and its authors, the raison d’être of the Commission.
