CHRISTIANE GERMAIN AND LOUISE PENNY COME TOGETHER TO SUPPORT THE MORRIN CENTRE’S ANNUAL LITERARY FEAST

Louise Penny, renowned international author, will be keynote speaker for the evening. Penny received many literary honours including a New Blood Dagger for Best First Novel; two Arthur Ellis awards; three Anthony awards; and an unprecedented four consecutive Agatha awards for best novel, in addition to a nomination for a fifth. Her books have made the New York Times Bestseller Lists repeatedly, and her Gamache novels have been published in 23 languages. One of her Inspector Gamache novels, Bury Your Dead, uses the Morrin Centre’s Victorian library as backdrop for a terrible murder. She will be talking about her new book, Glass Houses, on this occasion.

The evening’s Honorary President, Christiane Germain, is co-president of Groupe Germain Hotels, as well as the soul behind the experiential concept at Germain establishments. She is also in charge of operations for all hotels under the Le Germain Hotels banner and the Alt Hotel banner. Dynamic, tenacious and inventive, Christiane has made her mark in the restaurant and hotel industries. She is also a “dragon” on the show Dans l’oeil du dragon on Radio-Canada, the Quebec adaptation of Dragons Den.

A silent auction will also take place during the evening, with proceeds enabling the Morrin Centre to continue offering a variety of stimulating and innovative English-language cultural programs at a reasonable cost.
