Emma FitzGerald launches book about Halifax

Halifax visual artist Emma FitzGerald, who participated in The Elizabeth Bishop Festival on 8 August 2015, has recently returned from Brazil where she participated in an artist residency inspired by Elizabeth Bishop’s “Questions of Travel.” Check out a piece about this exciting trip in the Chronicle-Herald (http://thechronicleherald.ca/artslife/1304551-halifax-artist-heads-to-brazil-to-work-on-pieces-inspired-by-elizabeth-bishop).

While there, Quill & Quire (http://www.quillandquire.com/) published a page from her lively Brazilian journal.
On Tuesday, 27 October 2015, Emma will launch her book Hand-Drawn Halifax (Formac) at the Central Library at 7:00 p.m.
I am thrilled to say that Emma will be the guest speaker at the Elizabeth Bishop Society of Nova Scotia Annual General Meeting on 18 June 2016 (we wanted to book her early, because we know she’ll be in demand!). She will speak about her Brazilian sojourn.

Congratulations to Emma for all her recent activities and achievements!
