one of Canada most beloved writers and a master of the short story form, has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. While we were researching Ms. Munro’s achievements, we came across this interesting piece of trivia:

> Alice Munro has won the Governor General’s Literary Award – one of Canada’s most prestigious prizes – three times.

> Two Roads author Carrie Snyder was a finalist at the prize with her short story collection THE JULIET STORIES last year

But the connections don’t end there. When DEAR LIFE, the latest collection by Ms. Munro, came out in 2012, Carrie was asked by the National Post to review it. Read her review here: http://bit.ly/17qUFBZ

Olympic athlete who was famous in the 1920s, but now, at age 104, lives in a nursing home, alone and forgotten by history. When her quiet life is disturbed by the unexpected arrival of two young strangers, Aganetha begins to reflect on her childhood in rural Ontario and her struggles to make an independent life for herself in the city. Without revealing who they are, and what they may want from her, the two visitors take Aganetha on an outing from the nursing home. Returning her to the home of her birth, their ulterior motives and their identity are gradually revealed, forcing Aganetha to confront her own secrets and difficult life choices.

Set in the early twentieth century, Girl Runner is an engaging and endearing story about family, ambition, rivalry, athletics, and the dedicated pursuit of one’s passions.

I’m very proud to have a writer of Carrie’s distinction on the Two Roads list – Girl Runner is a brilliantly evocative story of time and place with an unforgettable heroine.

We even get a mention (thanks Carrie!):

The rights to Girl Runner have been sold in the UK (and Australia) to another terrific editor: Lisa Highton, who is the publisher of Two Roads, an imprint of Hodder & Stoughton. Yup. I’m over the moon, and have been re-reading somewhat compulsively the press release Lisa prepared yesterday to announce the acquisition. Kevin and kids are already plotting to hitchhike along on any future tours to the UK.

The book is being published by House of Anansi Press in Canada and we’ll publish in early spring 2015 alongside HarperCollins in the States. This is one of the hot books of Frankfurt Book Fair (which starts today), and foreign rights have been sold in Germany, Italy, France and The Netherlands!

Congrats Carrie!
