What a great event to reacquaint and meet with the Maritime kids lit gang:  the Canadian Children’s Roundtable Book Launch. Twelve authors and illustrators recounted lively yet candid and honest recounts of the journeys behind their new books alongside snacks such as homemade cheese crackers, and skorbar cheescake pops (Sure fire hit at the CNE next year)!IMG_2798My first encounter with seafood was meeting Jessica Scott Kerring, the author of the Lobster Chronicles. I bought great souvenirs such as A Bluenose Twelve Days of Christmas by Bruce Nunn and illustrated by Doretta Groenendyk who I met and Spin to Sea by her daughter Izra Fitch. I met my fellow Arthur Ellis finalist author of Live to Tell, Lisa Harrington and  Lisa Doucet owner of children’s bookstore extraordinary:  Woozles not to mention visited again with Budge Wilson and Carol McDougall.
