Claire Tacon '01 Wins The Metcalf-Rooke Award

Claire Tacon, graduate of 2001, is the 2010 winner of the The Metcalf-Rooke Award for her first novel, In The Field.

Excerpt from back cover - Praise for In The Field

"We were much engaged with this unsentimental portrait of a disintegrating marriage whose characters absorbed us.  We were also drawn to the dailyness of the Nova Scotia life the novel depicts.  If 'Canadian' means much in our fiction, this book embodies it."

- John Metcalf and Leon Rooke
