An award winning author and native of Port de Grave will launch her latest work in Cupids this weekend.
For almost two centuries the name Catherine Snow has been synonymous with murder. In her latest novel, Cather
ine Snow, Nellie P. Strowbridge challenges the verdict of judge and jury, using court and newspaper accounts of the trial as evidence against the verdict given without demonstrative evidence of Snow’s guilt. They said she was having an affair with a young Irish cooper... They said she had her husband killed... tangible evidence missing... circumstantial evidence flawed... She was sentenced to hang... her body sentenced beyond hanging. There were whispers... questions... Kit’s light to haunt the place.
A native of Port de Grave, Strowbridge is the winner of numerous awards including Canada’s Stamp of Approval Award and the author of several books including a Newfoundland and Labrador classic The Gift of Christmas, and best sellers Far from
Home (short-listed for The Newfoundland and Labrador Historic and History Award 2006); The Gift of Christmas, (reviewed by the Aurora as “A Newfoundland and Labrador Christmas Classic;” and the Newfoundland Tongue, (a bestseller).
Catherine Snow has already been entered in the Commonwealth Writers Prize competition.
Strowbridge will be at the Orange Lodge on Seaforest Drive, Cupids, Saturday afternoon, Oct. 17 and St. John’s Chapters, Kenmount Road, Thursday evening, Oct. 22 to launch her latest work.
