About the Event

A Pocket of Time.  Words by Rita Wilson.  Art by Emma Fitzgerald

Elizabeth Bishop (1911-1979) grew up to become a famous poet, but before that, she was a little girl who lived with her Gammie and Pa in Great Village, Nova Scotia.  It was there that Bishop learned to walk, to read, to write, to sing hymns, and to catch bumblebees in foxglove flowers.  It was there she first went to school and, when she was five, where her mother left and never returned.

A love letter to words, A Pocket of Time is a lesson for young readers in finding the poetry in everything.

Please join us on December 5th at the Fraser for the book launch.  Special fun is planned for younger ages.
