Back from Newfoundland
"I've just returned from a wonderful week in Newfoundland, sponsored by the Newfoundland and Labrador Public Libraries and the Canada Council. The kids were great. I particularly liked the response of one boy to the moment in "Thing-Thing" where the rather spoiled boy, Archibald Crimp, throws the stuffed creature out a window. 'He's a saucy one,' said the boy. Indeed.
"Did I mention that I saw 26 moose in one day?
"Attached are a few photos, including one of me reading before a packed house at the opening of the Trails, Tales, and Tunes Festival in Norris Point. (Packed for the festival, not just for me!) My thanks to all the people who helped along the way, but most especially to the indefatigable Sandy Chilcote from the library, my companion and guide throughout the week. A more knowledgable, caring, and kind person I couldn't imagine."
An article about Cary's visit was published in Corner Brook's newspaper, the 'Western Star.' You can read it here:
