The HRG presents "An Evening with Emma Donoghue"
Dr. Emma Donoghue is an Irish emigrant twice over: she spent eight
years in Cambridge, England—where, at the University of Cambridge
she received her PhD on the concept of friendship between men and
women in eighteenth-century English fiction, then settled in Canada’s
London, Ontario. Dr. Donoghue has written literary history and for
stage, screen and radio, but is best known for her novels, which range
from the historical (The Wonder, Slammerkin, Life Mask, The Sealed
Letter) to the contemporary (Akin, Stir-Fry, Hood, Landing). Her newest
novel The Pull of the Stars (2020) was inspired by the centenary of the
Great Flu of 1918 and is set in a Dublin hospital where a nurse midwife,
a doctor and a volunteer helper fight to save patients in a tiny maternity
ward. international bestseller Room was a New York Times Best Book of
2010 and was a finalist for the Man Booker, Commonwealth, and
Orange Prizes; her screen adaptation, directed by Lenny Abrahamson,
was nominated for four Academy Awards.
