Speaker For April 14 - Mary Novik
Mary Novik's novel, Muse (Doubleday 2013), is set in Avignon during the 14th-century when the popes lived there. Muse is narrated by the mysterious woman who was Francesco Petrarch's muse and later became the prophet and companion of Pope Clement VI.
Mary's first novel, Conceit (Doubleday 2007), is the story of Pegge, the daughter of the English love poet, John Donne, a contemporary of Shakespeare. Conceit was chosen as a Book of the Year by both Quill & Quire and The Globe and Mail. As well as being longlisted for the Giller Prize, it won BC's top fiction award, the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize.
Mary lives in North Vancouver and belongs to the writing group SPiN, which includes novelists Jen Sookfong Lee and June Hutton.
