Yesterday we launched Nix Minus One at the Writers’ Federation of Nova Scotia – I say “we,” because a great crowd of friends and family was there cheering him on.
My thanks to all of you for coming, on a typical NS spring day that started with snow flurries, moved to rain, then to heavy clouds, then back to rain.
I loved reading from Nix! After all, I lived with his voice for the better part of two years….
Having said that, I really like the photo with the painting of nudes in the background – I long ago decided that publishing a book, let alone reading from it to an audience, is a bit
like undressing in public.
All the food was homemade. Somehow this seemed to fit Nix.
Woozles Children’s Bookstore was there, and yes, we sold books.
And my grandson brought flowers. What more can I say?
