Great Village (the novel) wins an Atlantic Book Award

Mary Rose Donnelly's wonderful novel, Great Village, published by Cormorant Books of Toronto in 2011, received the Jim Conners Dartmouth Book Award (Fiction) at the Atlantic Book Awards ceremony held in St. John's, Newfoundland, on 17 May 2012. The Elizabeth Bishop Society of Nova Scotia held a launch for this novel at the Elizabeth Bishop Centenary Arts Festival in Great Village in August 2011. Needless to say, I highly recommend this book, as it evokes Great Village vividly and is also just a really good story. Congratulations to Mary Rose!
