The Woman Who Mapped Labrador: The Life and Expedition Diary of Mina Hubbard was shortlisted for the prestigious Winterset Award. The three co-authors all have strong ties with Memorial: Dr. Roberta Buchanan is professor emerita in the English Department; Bryan Greene is an alumnus, graduating in Geology. They were responsible for editing Mina Hubbard’s diary, annotating it, and writing the introduction to it. Anne Hart, former head of the Centre for Newfoundland Studies and now Library Research Professor, wrote the biography of Mina Hubbard. The Winterset Award, for excellence in Newfoundland and Labrador writing, was established in memory of Sandra Fraser Gwyn. The winner was Memorial honorary graduate Joan Clark for her novel An Audience of Chairs.
