The jury had a tough choice to make on April 26 at the Fosse aux Lions competition. After deliberating for more than a half hour, the four judges finally selected Dominique Noël’s La Cabane Guest House as the big winner of the 7th edition of La Fosse aux Lions. She takes home $15,000 in prize money, free publicity, and a mentorship opportunity.
The home of Gabrielle Roy is a very important and recurring symbol in the Franco-Canadian author's work. She lived there from her birth in 1909 to her departure for Europe in 1937. This house has been mentioned in many of her works, particularly in "Street of Riches" a series of stories inspired by the author's childhood in St. Boniface. Completely restored like in 1918, the house is today a must-see public museum.
