Congratulations to Emma Donohue

 Congratulations to fellow Irish transplant Emma Donohue on her Man Booker nomination for her novel Room (a bidding war for the novel's rights was won by Picador in the U.K., which paid a reported £1 million).

Had the pleasure of her company here last year as part of the UNB Reading Series. The winner is to be announced on October 12 - so fingers crossed.
