A dozen New Brunswick authors will soon have new stories to tell about their time spent travelling the province together.

The authors come from a mix of backgrounds: Acadian, Mi’kmaw, English, Wolastoquiyik.

They’re embarking on a six-stop, bilingual storytelling tour called “Creating Community,” where they will be sharing previously unpublished stories about community.

The project was brought to life by funding from the Canada Council of the Arts’ New Chapter program and the government of New Brunswick.

‘We have an extraordinary, interesting, vibrant province … I’m in the business of letting people know that New Brunswick is one of the best places in the world to live.’—Beth Powning

Sussex-based author Beth Powning, known for A Measure of Light and The Sea Captain’s Wife, is one of the 12 writers on the tour.

“I loved the idea of travelling around the province with people from these other communities … the idea of talking about community, and what makes community, was extremely important right now in the world today,” she said.
