Today all all about canadian books
author Donna Morrissey will tell us...
Hi! My name is crystal fletcher. Welcome to all about canadian books. This week's guest is author Donna Morrissey. Donna Morrissey is an award-winning, best-selling author and educator who says it was her good fortune to have been born and raised in an outport of 12 houses, and...where they were only allowed to talk to six of those!
We discussed her memoir Pluck, which was published by Penguin Canada. Pluck is a memoir of a Newfoundland Childhood and the Raucous, Terrible, Amazing Journey to Becoming a Novelist.
