April is jumping with literary opportunities - read on!

NOWW is delighted to present a reading by Canadian poet and novelist Karen Connelly on Friday 17th April at 7pm in MJL Black Library. Her first book, a poetry collection entitled The Small Words in My Body (1990), won the Pat Lowther Award for poetry in 1991. Her second book, Touch the Dragon: A Thai Journal (1992), won the Governor General's Award for non-fiction. Her experiences in Thailand served as the basis for her novel about a political prisoner, The Lizard Cage, which won the Orange Broadband Prize for New Writers and was long-listed for the 2007IMPAC Award.
