"I am 3/4ths Canadian, and one 4th New Englander - I had ancestors on both sides in the Revolutionary war." - Elizabeth Bishop

The Elizabeth Bishop Society of Nova Scotia launched Echoes of Elizabeth Bishop on Saturday afternoon, 22 June 2013, at the Great Village Legion. Since "a picture is worth a thousand words," this post will be a little photo essay of the festivities. The EBSNS thanks all those who attended, especially the contributors who could be present, some of whom came some distance. Anyone interested in purchasing a copy of Echoes of Elizabeth Bishop can do so at the Elizabeth Bishop Society of Nova Scotia website (www.elizabethbishopns.org). The EBSNS would like to thank the book artists at Gaspereau Press in Kentville, N.S., for their stellar work on this book. The contents are eloquent and the book itself is elegant.
