Barnabas Fellowship

Congratulations to Elaine Ingalls Hogg

from Smiths Creek, NB

The Barnabas Fellowship is a grant enabling a member of InScribe to further his or her progress in writing. It is named for Barnabas, a co-worker with the Apostle Paul. His story is found in the book of Acts. Barnabas means “encourager,” which coincides with the purpose of this award. More information at: http://www.inscribe.org/07-contest-barnabas.htm

“This is a guide and history of Grand Manan, as endearing as a journey through an old, cherished photograph album. Every picture tells a story and every entry is interesting. It is pioneer territory and pioneers who made the history. … The author makes the reader curious to read other books she has done.” Meg Patrick of Eastport in the May 25 edition of The Quoddy Tides
News: - Historic Grand Manan # 5 on New Brunswick's Top Seller List for the week of August 11, 07.


Joey's Secret Wish, is a story about a little boy's
determination to overcome his family's poverty and other obstacles in order to learn how to play the piano, was launched successfully Thursday evening, September 20. Mind you, I had some misgivings when ten minutes before the appointed time only a handful of people had arrived to celebrate the occasion. Thankfully about 80 people showed up before the evening was over. Ah, book launches, they do know how to create anxiety in the author's heart!
Copies of the book ($10.00 plus mailing) are available by contacting the author.

The books, Christmas in the Maritimes (Nimbus Publishing) and When Canada Joined Cape Breton (Nimbus Publishing) were both best sellers. Remembering Honey was the winner of the Marianna Dempster Award.
