Book launch and artist Q&A with author/illustrator Laurie Swim - November 4th, 2017

The Halifax Central Library will host Laurie Swim as she launches her brand new children's book Hope and Survival: A Story of the Halifax Explosion. The book, richly illustrated with Laurie’s unique artwork, tells the story of a young girl caught up in the aftermath of the explosion.

Laurie will read from the picture book and answer questions on art quilting. She will also give a talk about creating her monumental centennial quilt "Hope and Survival", which is currently on display at Halifax's Maritime Museum of the Atlantic. Some of the original snow-dyed and quilted pieces she created to illustrate the book will be on display at the library.

Where: Halifax Central Library, 5440 Spring Garden Rd, Halifax NS

When:  3:30-4:30 pm, Saturday Nov 4th, 2017
