If Frances Jewel Dickson had not approached us here at White Point two years ago with the idea of doing a retrospective on White Point, we would not have had such a rich, authentic and detailed voice for White Point.
If Frances had not already filed her final manuscript just days before our fire on November 12/11, the retrospective would likely have been told so differently.
This month, as we continue on our journey back to opening this November, in our 10th month since the fire, we definitly believe in fate and that certain things happen at just the right time, when they should and involve those that need to be, should be, involved.
Frances Jewel Dickson was meant to capture our retrospective, making us stronger for having reflected, recounted and reconnect with our past, as we grow stronger, as Frances says, “as a legion of White Pointers anxiously await the re-opening so we can again witness living history”.
Today, in the Sept. 16th edition of The Nova Scotian, Destination White Point was reviewed: http://thechronicleherald.ca/books/136386-white-point-history-includes-epilogue-on-devastating-fire
On September 23, from 2:00-2:30pm, Frances will be reading from and discussing her book as a featured Author at Halifax’s Word or the Street: http://www.thewordonthestreet.ca/wots/halifax/author/frances-jewel-dickson
Of course you can meet Frances in person in the Book Trailer we launched earlier this summer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVaIV1jNHwo&list=UUuiTDQxeYmgl_9Uq2osF55w&index=3&feature=plcp
Although we have not set a date, we are planning to welcome home Destination White Point, at a Homecoming Event after we re-open, stay tuned!
