When a best-selling book is turned into a movie, it’s not often the author also gets to write the screenplay. Author Emma Donoghue got the opportunity to do just that for the movie adaptation of her best-selling novel “Room.”
The film later received multiple Oscar nods and a win for Best Actress.
Now Donoghue has started a new project called “The Lotterys Plus One.” The children’s book explores the life of a large multicultural family living together in a 32-room mansion. The author says although the book is geared toward a younger audience, there are similarities to some of the aspects of "Room."
“The Lotterys Plus One” is available now.
