Thank you, Nova Scotia!

I just got back from a wonderful six days in Nova Scotia, where I was part of the “Word on the Street” festivities.  What a great place.  I’ve always loved Nova Scotia, and don’t get to visit often enough (although I’m happy to report I’ll be back there in the spring, promoting the new book, THE EMPTY ROOM).

Thought I’d share some photos with you. . .

With Marina Endicott and Dan Vyleta, aboard the Silva, on the CBC Book Club Cruise











Boarding The Silva with the Wolfville Book Club









Dinner with Ron Davis (my Best Beloved) Valerie Compton, Chantal Vyleta, Marina Endicott,(me) and Dan Vyleta










With CTV Host Starr Dobson, getting ready for the “Live at Five” interview











Reading at “Word on the Street” Halifax










With Mitzi DeWolfe, the owner of BOX OF DELIGHTS BOOKSHOP in Wolfville, and Samantha.










I’ve got a couple more I’ll post soon, including a sort of action shot with David Adams Richards, taken while he was telling a story about a Dutch sailor climbing up to the highest of crow’s nests, with a little girl.  Scary and wonderful.

More to come . . .  (And as promised, here are the more . . . ):

David Adams Richards tells a tall tale about ships to Marina Endicott and me. (He’s as good a story-teller in person as he is on the page!)











After a lovely lunch with Chronicle Herald reporter Ian Fairclough










With the delightful Valerie Compton and Donna Morrissey










Author Ami McKay (Such a lovely person)









With publisher extraordinaire, Doug Gibson (he’s signing his book for me!)

Wonderful memories!  Thanks everyone, for making me feel so welcome.

    Lauren, looks like you had a wonderful time in Nova Scotia. While it’s obvious that your’e well suited for your career as an author, you seem to have a knack for tourism promotion too! I’m sure your readership is growing by leaps and bounds, which is well deserved. Congrats on the Giller long-list, and best wishes for next steps.
