Gibsons resident Kathy Para of Gibsons, BC and her debut novel Lucky recently won the annual ‘Search for the Great BC Novel Contest’ sponsored by Mother Tongue Publishing of Salt Spring Island, BC.
After choosing Para’s work from five short-listed novels, judge Caroline Adderson stated, “Lucky is a beautiful, harsh, tension-filled novel. Its language is startling and fresh. It’s also funny, thanks to the unflinching perceptions of its daring and damaged protagonist Ani, a war photojournalist and surly survivor. Lucky me. I got to read this book first.”
Lucky will be published this fall by Mother Tongue Publishing and launched in Vancouver and Gibsons.
