In May 2011, after four years of life on McNutt's Island, we moved to Montreal. This blog remains, though, as a (sort of) daily record of our time on the island, and a winding path for anyone who would like to meander about among its magical places. For additional perspectives and insights I recommend Greg's book, Island Year: Finding Nova Scotia (2010), and my Bowl of Light (2012). I'll continue to post once in a while. If you do want to read this blog, one option would be to begin at the beginning of it (which is, as we all know, in blog-world, at the end), and read forward, concluding with the most recent entry. It's a journal, really, so it does makes more sense if you read it that way. But, you know, read it any way you like.

Launch for Island Year on May 18th

We are so excited that Greg's book is having its launch. We actually did not know what a "launch" was. I'm still not certain. But I think I'm about to learn.
The launch for Island Year:Finding Nova Scotia is sponsored and hosted by The Whirligig Book Shop on Water Street in Shelburne. Whirligig owners Betty and Bill Camp have provided the Shelburne area with this extraordinary place where you can not only find or order the book you want, but also discover books that you didn't know you needed until you see them there. And The Whirligig is also a kind of meeting place where you never know who you'll run into, or what local goings-on you 'll hear about.

Island Year will launch on May 18th at 7:00 pm, at Osprey Arts Centre, another terrific Shelburne institution. But there's no need to wait for the launch to buy Greg's book. It's available at The Whirligig right now!

Congratulations to you both!! Wish I could be there.
Meanwile I got onto Whirligig's website and am in the process of ordering Greg's book and also The Book of Negroes and the book about Nova Scotian landscape artists - treasure trove!! And I can support a small local bookseller rather than Amazon or Indigo. Win/win!
BTW our Indian pear are in full bloom.
