Halifax launch of A POCKET OF TIME

On 7 December at the Central Library in Halifax, N.S., Rita Wilson, Emma FitzGerald and Nimbus Publishing launched A POCKET OF TIME: THE POETIC CHILDHOOD OF ELIZABETH BISHOP. I was so glad to be able to attend this event, a packed room on the children's floor of the library. Many EBSNS friends were there, including Susan Kerslake, who has provided the photos of the gathering below. Today in Great Village, at the Elizabeth Bishop House, Rita and Emma will be having another launch. I hope to have photos from it to share, too. You can get hold of the book by going to the Nimbus Publishing website -- or in Nova Scotia, by going to your local independent bookstore.
