Authors Douglas Coupland and Louise Penny are among the 90 new appointees named to the Order of Canada. The announcement was made yesterday by Governor General David Johnston.

Coupland is honoured for “his contributions to our examination of the contemporary human condition as a novelist, cultural commentator and artist.” Penny received the honour for “her contributions to Canadian culture as an author shining a spotlight on the Eastern Townships of Quebec.”

The appointees will be officially invested into the Order of Canada at a later date.
