Emma Donoghue

Tuesday, January 24, 7:30 p.m.

Emma Donoghue’s international bestseller Room was a New York Times Best Book of 2010 and a finalist for the Man Booker and Orange prizes; she also wrote the film adaptation in 2015. Now Donoghue returns with another gripping masterpiece about a young Irish girl who is said to have survived without food for months and believes herself to be living on manna from heaven. The Wonder works beautifully on many levels—a tale of two strangers who transform each other’s lives, a powerful psychological thriller, and a story of love pitted against evil. Booklist gave it a starred review, calling it “outstanding. . . . Exploring the nature of faith and trust with heartrending intensity.”
