"In the Village" Afternoon a success

On Sunday, 17 August 2014, the EBSNS hosted a gathering of five young artists at the "In the Village" Cafe in St. James United Church in Great Village. These young artists included: Maria Duynisveld, Libby Schofield, April Sharpe, Laura Sharpe, and Anneke Stroink. We were excited to have an audience of around forty people. The young presenters did a fantastic job, reading Bishop poems and their own work, and talking about their experiences being involved in Bishop activities and projects. I'll be posting some photos of this event soon, but this note is to alert you to a wonderful blog post written by one of our participants, Libby Schofield. I wanted to direct you to her blog and website and urge you to read her most thoughtful essay about her connection to Elizabeth Bishop and Great Village. Thank you, Libby, for your kind words. We are so proud of you and glad to hear that your involvement in the EB100 Writing Competition was so important and meaningful for you. Keep your ears and eyes open for Libby -- she will be doing wonderful things in the future -- as we know all these young women will be.
