One award missing from CBC Massey lecturer’s trophy case

Starting today and continuing through the week you can listen to the 2011 CBC Massey Lecture series, starring well-known New Yorker contributor Adam Gopnik, who is presenting his series of essays on winter (Winter: Five Windows on the Season).

The bio of Adam on the CBC’s website notes that he is “a three-time winner of the National Magazine Award for Essays and for Criticism”; this matches almost verbatim what you’ll find on his New Yorker bio.

Point of clarification: these accolades are from the American National Magazine Awards. However, Adam Gopnik is also a Canadian National Magazine Award laureate: In 2007 The Walrus published his essay “The Mindful Museum,” which won a Gold award in the Arts & Entertainment category.

So tune in and hear four-time National Magazine Award winner Adam Gopnik present his critical reflections on Canada’s most iconic season.
