Biography

Emma Donoghue is only available for school-visit bookings on April 10, 2017. We have the Internationally acclaimed author Emma Donoghue – best known for her novel Room. In addition to her public talk in the evening at the Calgary Public Library’s Dutton Theatre, Ms. Donoghue will be doing two in-school events early that day presenting her new book – and first for kids – called The Lotterys Plus One. Geared towards young readers aged 8 to 12, The Lotterys Plus One tells the story of a large, multicultural and diverse family. The story features four parents composed of two same-sex couples who join forces to raise seven home-schooled kids. (Click here for a review of the book, described by Kirkus Reviews as “a story about the true meaning of acceptance and belonging.”) The book is marvelous!
