Katalin’s Biography:

Katalin Kennedy, Author

Katalin (András) Kennedy arrived in Canada as a child refugee with her parents, after the Hungarian uprising of 1956. She attended Carleton University, obtaining her degree in English Literature and Religious Studies. Her career was spent working for the Federal Government as a program manager of national projects addressing seniors’ and women’s issues. Upon retirement, she and her now late husband, the Rev. Duncan Scott Kennedy moved to Cornwall, where she began to pursue her passion – writing. For ten years she was a monthly Columnist for Seaway News. During that time, she began to write her first novel.

Since then, each of her books has been published by Baico Publishing in Ottawa: The Women Gather, Reconnecting, Echoes of Footsteps, Crossing the Threshold, and her latest novel Tree of Knowledge.

She continues her involvement in various Cornwall community organizations: Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW), Probus Club of Cornwall and Area, Encore Education Centre and Regional Writers’ Society.

Kennedy has been the recipient of the 2016 Seekers Choice Award for Literary Artist and was one of the 2018 inductees into the Cornwall Arts Hall of Fame for Literature.
