Donna Janke
Donna Janke is a Canadian writer of fiction and non-fiction



I am excited to announce my latest project. 111 Places in Winnipeg That You Must Not Miss will be published by Emons Verlag in fall of 2024. The 111 Places series of guide books takes you beyond the usual landmarks and attractions to discover the true character, history, and flavour of a destination. Gin Ouskun will be taking the photographs that accompany my writing. It is an honour and a pleasure to highlight those places that show the spirit, diversity, and resiliency of The Peg.
