Shelf Exposure, Ep. 4: Donna Morrissey

Donna Morrissey shows us some priceless family mementos alongside some of her most-read books.

Donna Morrissey, author of The Deception of Livvy Higgs (Penguin Canada), is one heck of a live wire, so we couldn't wait to book her for an episode of Shelf Exposure. On the day this was recorded, a tropical storm lashed about Halifax, yet Donna appeared, cozy and safely ensconced in the room that holds all her books.

If you're new to Shelf Exposure, it goes like this. We invite writers to revisit their shelves to identify themes among the books they've collected over a lifetime. Then, we enter a lightning round, during which participants are thrown a host of requests, their only task to hold up a book that satisfies each one.

Bring out your books! Show us your goods! Expose your shelf!




Donna Morrissey appears at the Wild Writers' Literary Festival, November 8–10, 2013, in Waterloo, ON. Follow #Fest2Fest for all our fall festival coverage. Set in the Maritimes and Newfoundland, The Deception of Livvy Higgs has been called "the Stone Angel of the East Coast." See here for a review.
