Truro Talk, Sept. 26

2017-09-09 16:22:29 A.J.B. Johnston

I greatly enjoyed speaking at the the Colchester Historeum in Truro, NS, on Sept. 26. The topic was “Vanguard: 150 Years of Remarkable Nova Scotians,” the exhibit I researched and wrote for the Nova Scotia Museum. There were thirty people in attendance, and all keen to hear about the individuals selected.

Meanwhile, the Vanguard exhibit has closed its run at the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History and will be re-opening, without the artifacts, at Ross Farm in New Ross, NS

Dartmouth Talk, Nov. 16

2017-09-09 15:46:56 A.J.B. Johnston

Details are now firmed up for my Nov. 16, 2017 presentation on the Vanguard exhibit — 150 Years of Remarkable Nova Scotians — to the University Women of Dartmouth.

The location will be Oakwood House, 20 Boathouse Lane, in Dartmouth. There is a regular meeting that starts at 7 pm, and then about 8 pm I will be talking about the exhibit, with a focus — as requested by the University Women — on the many women whose accomplishments are celebrated in the exhibit.

The Vanguard exhibit, by the way, is opening soon in the new exhibit center at Ross Farm (New Ross, NS) and later will be hosted by the Desbrisay Museum in Bridgewater, NS.

I am delighted to be offering a presentation at the brand-new (really quite old) library in Truro, NS. What used to be the 19th-century Normal College has been completely renovated and now is the home of the Truro branch of the Colchester East Hants Library. Here is the link to my talk.

"So You Want to be Published"

2017-04-30 11:46:42 A.J.B. Johnston

Sarah Sawler and I took our traveling Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia roadshow “So You Want To Be Published” to Wolfville on April 29. It was once again a full house of engaged writers. Together, everyone shared ideas and experiences, with Sarah and I leading the way. Next, I’ll be doing something similar with Norma Jean MacPhee in Sydney on May 9. Sarah and I will be getting our little band back together for one last performance in Yarmouth on May 16.
