A bevy of exciting new perks has been added to the Elizabeth Bishop Legacy Recording crowd-source fund-raising campaign. Check them out at: http://eb100legacyrecording.blogspot.ca/p/thank-you-gifts.html

Some of these new perks include:

A movie or a skate on the Halifax Commons with Suzie LeBlanc and friends.

A getaway to Windhorse Farm
 (http://www.windhorsefarm.org/) in New Germany, N.S.

A private film screening for an upcoming documentary about Suzie LeBlanc’s retracing of Elizabeth Bishop’s 1932 walking tour of Newfoundland, produced by film-maker Linda Rae Dornan.

A tea party at the Elizabeth Bishop House and a guided walking tour of Great Village with Sandra Barry.

An evening of conversation with our own webmaster and Russian scholar John Barnstead where you will feast on a home-made dinner with a Russian theme.

Do check out these and all the other perks being offered to thank you for your contribution in support of the Elizabeth Bishop Legacy Recording.

[Ed. Note: We are having a bit of a technical problem with the paypal link for the new perks -- but there is a donation link a the top of the perks page and also on the main page of the Elizabeth Bishop Legacy Recording site. We are working to correct the glitch, so your patience is greatly appreciated, but if you want to donate, just go to the main page and use the link there. Thanks so much.]
