Literary Landmarks: Margaret Laurence Home

Margaret Laurence Home Margaret Laurence was born in Neepawa, Manitoba on July 18, 1926 to Robert Harrison Wemyss, a lawyer, and his wife Verna Jean. A novelist and short story writer she is one of the major figures in Canadian literature and also a founder of the Writers' Trust of Canada which seeks to encourage Canada's writing community.
