MFA Visiting Editor in Creative Nonfiction, Linda Spalding, wins Governor General’s award for her novel The Purchase
It has been a pretty good year for Toronto author Linda Spalding.
Her book The Purchase was a finalist for the Writers Trust award for fiction and now she has taken the Governor General’s award for English fiction.
The Purchase is a story about the purchase of a slave by a Quaker man in the late 18th century and the consequences that flow from that act.
The award winners were announced at a Montreal press conference Tuesday.
