A local author has been recognized by Memorial University for her latest book.
Anne Budgell, a journalist and former broadcaster has won the Peter Cashin Prize, an award presented each year by Memorial University’s Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities.
“We All Expected To Die: Spanish Influenza in Labrador, 1918-1919” was chosen as the best scholarly book on history of Newfoundland and Labrador published in 2018.
Budgell says she’s pretty pleased with the recognition.
