We are thrilled to announce that Molly of the Mall: Literary Lass and Purveyor of Fine Footwear by Heidi L.M. Jacobs has been announced as the winner for the 73rd Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour. Our sincerest congratulations to this uproarious novel!
Molly of the Mall was shortlisted alongside Amy Spurway’s CROW (Goose Lane Editions) and Drew Hayden Taylor’s play Cottagers and Indians (Talonbooks).
Molly of the Mall is about Molly MacGregor, named for one of literature’s least romantic protagonists, Moll Flanders. Molly lives in Edmonton, a city she finds irredeemably unromantic, where she writes university term papers instead of novels, and sells shoes in the Largest Mall on Earth.
You buy the print copy of Molly of the Mall at All Lit Up, Chapters Indigo, or through many local bookstores. Additionally, the eBook is available at Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, Kobo, Nook Books, and various ebook vendors.
