my favorite author and my favorite island

My favorite author, Louise Penny, writes village mysteries set in Quebec. Her book STILL LIFE has been chosen for PEI’s One Book, One Island summer selection.  One Book, One Island is an island wide program to help promote literacy.  It’s one big book club. What a great idea. The web site below can be cut and pasted into your url and you can read about Louise and the program.  I encourage everyone to read her books.  They are award winning best sellers.  Wonderfully written mysteries with unique and endearing characters in the village of Three Pines.  I’m currently awaiting her next book, A TRICK OF LIGHT.

In honor of this wonderful occasion I will be re-reading STILL LIFE.

I spent many summers on my uncle’s farm on PEI as a child. It was a perfect contrast to my urban childhood in Somerville, MA. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Here are some of my photos of PEI.
