In the Village Afternoon -- a few photos of the gathering

EBSNS President Laurie Gunn took these photographs of the "In the Village" Cafe Afternoon at the St. James United Church. Check out the post below this one to learn more about the events of that lively and inspiring afternoon.

We had a good audience who were most appreciative of all excellent presenters. Here we are all enjoying tea and blueberry treats in the cafe.

As emcee, I got to introduce all our young presenters. Here is ten-year-old Anneka Stroinktalking about her experience portraying Elizabeth Bishop in John Scott's short filmsbased on Bishop's poems "First Death in Nova Scotia" and "In the Waiting Room."

Everyone listening attentively.
