The Canadian winter may be raging, but Louise Penny has a few things to keep her warm. 

Penny’s How the Light Gets In, the latest in her series about Chief Inspector Armand Gamache of the Quebec Sûreté in Montreal, has been nominated for an Edgar Award by the Mystery Writers of America.

While Penny will have to wait until the Edgar banquet on May 1 in New York City, the author already has been honored by her native country.

Penny and author Douglas Coupland are among the 90 new appointees named to the Order of Canada.

Penny was honored for “her contributions to Canadian culture as an author shining a spotlight on the Eastern Townships of Quebec.”

Coupland was honored for “his contributions to our examination of the contemporary human condition as a novelist, cultural commentator and artist.”

No date has yet been set for the honorees to be officially invested into the Order of Canada.

The Order of Canada is one of the country’s highest civilian honors. It  was established in 1967, during Canada’s centennial year, to recognize outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation.

During the last 45 years, more than 6 000 people from all sectors of society have been invested into the Order.
