BSS welcomes Kim Thúy, this year’s Hill Canadian Authors Fund speaker
We recently welcomed Canadian author Kim Thúy, CQ to the BSS campus as this year’s speaker supported by the Hill Canadian Authors fund. Ms. Thúy spoke to our Senior School students about her journey to Canada from Vietnam as a refugee, her debut novel Ru, which won the 2010 Governor General’s Award for French language fiction, and her experiences as an immigrant and a writer.
The Hill Canadian Author Speaker Series has been bringing great Canadian writers to BSS for 31 years. BSS thanks the Hill family for their visionary generosity in creating this exceptional experience for our students: Harry and Alverna Hill, Meredith HILL Robitaille ’76, Megan HILL ’78, Marta HILL ’81, Paisley HILL ’85, Sarah CRANSTON ’09 and Grace Garvey, Class of 2018.
