Book Launch in Nain and Hopedale

A book launch will take place in Nain and Hopedale this week.

‘The Polar Bear in the Rock: Two Windows on the World’ will make its debut.

First in Nain tomorrow, then Hopedale the following day.

The book is about the legends of the polar bear on Mount Sophie.

Martha Macdonald is the Associate Director of the Labrador Institute in Goose Bay.

She says Shannon Webb and Danielle Baikie collected the stories from elders here in Nain.

The book was published by Labrador Institute and printed by Goose Lane Publications in Fredericton, New Brunswick.

The public is invited to attend the launch.

It will take place here at the Multi-Purpose room of the Primary School at 11am tomorrow.

And in Hopedale at the school at 10:30 am on March 24th.

Launches will also take place in Goose Bay and St. John’s at a later date.

Baikie and Webb will attend those as they could not make it to the launch in Nain.
