Sonja Larsen Wins the Edna Staebler Award for CNF!
Oct 3, 2017
Sonja Larsen has won the Edna Staebler Award for Creative Non-Fiction with her debut memoir, Red Star Tattoo.
“As is the case with lives themselves, all memoirs are unique, but this seems especially true of Sonja Larsen’s Red Star Tattoo: My Life as a Girl Revolutionary,” said Bruce Gillespie, professor at Wilfrid Laurier University and juror for the award.
Red Star Tattoo took the writer eight years to complete, and was published by Random House Canada last year. Larsen is represented by Page Two principal and Transatlantic Agency associate agent Trena White.
Larsen’s win will be celebrated on Nov. 9 with an award presentation and reading in the Robert Langen Art Gallery and Library on the Waterloo campus of WLU. You can also meet the author on the Brantford campus the following day.
