Popularity soars for Donoghue whose recent winning of the UC Book of the Year Award means her book will be read by 5000 staff and students of the Australian university. Upon winning the prize, Donoghue said “I’m immensely excited about Room being chosen as the University of Canberra Book of the Year, not only because it’s such a compliment to the novel, but because students – bringing all their enthusiasm to responding to a book, as well as their critical thinking – are perhaps my favourite audience to engage with.” Come engage with Ms. Donoghue on Oct. 10, 2013 at Concordia University (Hall Building 767, 7PM).
