The Humanities Research Group is “thrilled” to present author Emma Donoghue discussing her approach to writing, says director Kim Nelson.
Dr. Donoghue will make a public presentation Thursday, Nov. 12, at 7 p.m. as part of Humanities Week.
“The author of plays, screenplays, articles, biographies, short stories, and history books, she is a versatile, powerful, productive, and prescient writer who completed her 13th novel, a book set amidst the pandemic of 1918, during worldwide COVID lockdowns last spring,” says Dr. Nelson.
Donoghue has written literary history and for stage, screen, and radio, but is best known for her novels, which range from the historical to the contemporary. Born in Dublin, she now lives in London, Ontario.
Admission to Thursday’s event is free, but advance registration is required to receive the Zoom link.
Humanities Week activities will continue with:
- presentations by finalists in the “Why Humanities?” contest at 1 p.m. Friday, Nov. 13; and
- a screening and discussion of the film The North Was Our Canaan at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17.
