The author Emma Donoghue is coming to Cape Breton at the end of the month. She will be reading at the McConnell Library April 30th at 7:00PM
Her novel Room was shortlisted for the Booker Man Prize and will soon be released as a movie. Donohue wrote the script for director Lenny Abrahamson (What Richard Did, Frank).
Lisa Schwarzbaum gave the book an A- and wrote: “Though the story’s chilling circumstances reflect the horrors endured by tabloid-famous abductees, Donoghue avoids all sensationalism. Instead, she gracefully distills what it means to be a mother – and what it’s like for a child whose entire world measures just 11 x 11."
