Previously I announced that my sister, Dr. Annette Hayward, had been nominated for the Governor General’s Award in Literature for the best non-fiction book in French. It was recently announced that she had won the award. A great honour for her first book and recognition of her great contribution to Canadian Literature. See my summary of the book at http://www.typepad.com/t/app/weblog/post?__mode=edit_entry&id=34615426&blog_id=252715
Annette is a Professor in the French Department at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. In addition to being an expert in French Canadian Literature, she also promotes Canadian Studies at Queens and is a specialist in psychological criticism of French literature.
