Noted author coming to read

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."
