Question & Answer
What are you reading?
A Word from the Editor
Welcome to the second edition of Books@MUN. And thanks to all of you who showed such enthusiasm when we launched in November 2012. Remember, Books@MUN is designed to highlight and promote books and authors in the Faculty of Arts. So we want to hear from you when you have any book-related news … signed a contract with a new publisher? Found a new collaborator? We want to know!
We’re also quite keen on hearing your ideas for new features – an innovation in this edition is a review by a student of a book by an alumnus (Greg Malone’s Don’t Tell the Newfoundlanders). Let us know what you think – and if you are interested in reviewing a book by alumni or faculty, please get in touch!
As most of you know, our Author, Author book event (held in February) was relaunched this year as A Fine Crowd. This name change was necessary in order to expand the event to include faculty members who have won internal and external awards and to honour those who have received major research funding. And we also created our own award – the William J. Kirwin Award for Retiree Recognition. It recognizes those faculty member retirees who continue their research and engagement activities. Of course Dr. Kirwin was honoured for his continuing work on one of Newfoundland’s most iconic books – The Dictionary of Newfoundland English.
Don’t forget to email email@example.com with news and get coverage for your own books and book-related events.

Congratulations to Newfoundland and Labrador author Lisa Moore (and occasional instructor in the Faculty of Arts’ English department) who won the 2013 CBC Canada Reads Competition for her novel February (released by House of Anansi in 2009). Her latest novel, Caught, has just been released (May 2013).
