Great Village launch of A POCKET OF TIME

On Sunday, 8 December, at the Elizabeth Bishop House in Great Village, N.S., Rita Wilson and Emma FitzGerald launched A Pocket of Time: The Poetic Childhood of Great Village. I wish I could have been there, but it was not possible. Laurie Gunn kindly sent me some photos of the event, which looks like it was a grand time. I know for certain that the house itself would have loved all that company, all those wonderful people celebrating Bishop's time there. Thanks, Laurie, for sharing some glimpses of the event.

through to its beautiful conclusion. Now the fun begins.
Today in Great Village, Rita and Emma are spending
time with the children at the GV School.)
