An intimate public reading by bestselling Newfoundland author Donna Morrissey


WHEN:    Thursday, May 19th at 7:00 p.m.
WHERE:  Confederation Centre Public Library
Donna Morrissey has written three vivid novels set within the Newfoundland culture and has received awards in Canada, the U.S. and England. Reviewers have compared her depictions of Newfoundland’s terrain and people to the worlds summoned up by Hardy and Faulkner. Donna’s fiction has been translated into several different languages, and has proven especially popular in Japan, Holland and Germany. She is also a scriptwriter: Clothesline Patch (a short story) won a Gemini for best production, as well as the best picture prize at the Los Angeles Film Festival. Her latest novel, What They Wanted, moves away from Nfld. and onto the oilfields of Alberta, and has been hitting the bestseller lists across the country. Join the PEI Writers’ Guild and Library staff for an intimate evening with Donna Morrissey . All are welcome, refreshments will be served, and books will be available.
