Frog Music:
One on One with
Emma Donoghue

Hosted by The National Post's Mark Medley
"Time and again, Emma Donoghue writes books that are unlike anything I have ever seen before.' Ann Patchett 'Emma Donoghue is one of the great literary ventriloquists of our time. Her imagination is kaleidoscopic. She steps borders and boundaries with great ease and style. In her hands the centuries dissolve, and then they crystallize back again into powerful words on the page.
— Colum McCann
Emma Donoghue

It is 1876, and San Francisco, the freewheeling “Paris of the West,” is in the fierce grip of a record-breaking heat wave and a smallpox epidemic. Through the window of a railroad saloon, a young woman called Jenny Bonnet is shot dead.


In thrilling, cinematic style, Frog Music by Emma Donoghue, the international bestselling author of Room, digs up a long-forgotten, never-solved crime. Full of songs that migrated across the world, it is a lyrical tale of love and bloodshed. Like much of her acclaimed fiction, this larger-than-life story is based on real people and documents. 


Join us for a taste of the new book and an on-stage conversation with the National Post’s Mark Medley.
