Transatlantic Agency remembers Teva Harrison today. Teva was a singular talent and incredible friend to many. A vibrant part of our literary community, Teva’s list of accomplishments is impressively long. Her graphic novel memoir In-Between Days: A Memoir about Living with Cancer was a 2016 Governor General’s Literary Award Finalist, a 2017 Joe Shuster Award Nominee and won the 2017 Kobo Emerging Writer Prize. 45 works from In-Between Days were exhibited in a solo show at the Winnipeg Art Gallery.

Outside of the soaring success of In-Between Days, Teva was a Canadian Magazine Award and National Magazine Award finalist and the Principal Illustrator for the National Film Board/National Theatre production of playwright Jordan Tannahill’s Draw Me Close. Teva regularly spoke on creativity and led workshops on telling life stories, and her work has appeared in The Walrus, Granta, Quill & Quire, Huffington Post, Carte Blanche, Reader’s Digest, The Globe and Mail, and more. Teva was also a regular commentator on CBC Radio, in the Toronto Star, and has appeared on programs including Canada AM, The Agenda with Steve Paikin, Space TV’s InnerSpace, The Morning Show, in Maclean’s, Chatelaine, Rabble, and more.

Our thoughts are with her husband and life partner, David Leonard.
