Writer Natalie Morrill will read from The Ghost Keeper on Sunday, Nov. 17, at the Saint John Jewish Historical Museum as part of UNB Saint John’s Lorenzo Reading Series.

Winner of the HarperCollins/UBC Prize for Best New Fiction, this powerful, sweeping novel set in Vienna during the 1930s and 1940s centres on a poignant love story and a friendship that ends in betrayal.

The Ghost Keeper is a story about the terrible choices we make to survive and the powerful connections to communities and friends that define us. Here is a finely accomplished novel that introduces an exciting new voice to our literary landscape.

Natalie Morrill holds an MFA in creative writing from the University of British Columbia. Her fiction and poetry have been published in Canadian journals and included in The Journey Prize anthology.

The Lorenzo Reading Series acknowledges the support of The League of Canadian Poets, the New Brunswick Literary Promotion Program, UNB Saint John, UNB Saint John Bookstore, and its private reading sponsors.

Natalie Morrill will read from her novel on Sunday, Nov. 17, at 2 p.m. at the Saint John Jewish Historical Museum, 91 Leinster Street.
