The Festival is proud to welcome school children of all ages to Harbourfront Centre. This special visit is pre-registered and exclusive to educational institutions. Special guest is Emma Donoghue.
Emma Donoghue is an Irish emigrant twice over: She spent eight years in Cambridge doing a PhD in 18th-century literature before moving to London, Ontario, where she lives with her partner and their two children. She also migrates between genres, writing literary history, biography, and stage and radio plays, as well as fairy tales and short stories. She is best known for her novels, which range from the historical to the contemporary. Her international bestseller Room was a New York Times Best Book in 2010 and a finalist for the Man Booker Prize, the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best Book and the Orange Prize. The Lotterys More or Less is her second novel for young readers.
