And Then There Were Nuns Short-Listed for 2014 Word Award
Greystone is thrilled to announce that And Then There Were Nuns has been short-listed for the 2014 Word Award in the Book – Life Stories category. And Then There Were Nuns: Adventures in a Cloistered Life documents Christmas's stay in a series of convents to see whether she is, as she puts it, "nun material." Living among these communities of cloistered nuns and monks, she shares—and occasionally rails against—the silent, reverent, pared-down existence she has sought all her life. With insight and humour, she provides a glimpse into a seldom seem lifestyle.
Jane Christmas's previous books include What the Psychic Told the Pilgrim and Incontinent on the Continent. The Word Awards recognizes talented Canadian writers who are Christian, and celebrates their pursuits in writing.
