Dinner with Farley Mowat AND Elizabeth May!

I haven’t posted here for a couple of weeks, but this is truly a unique opportunity. Our Elizabeth May interview will be posted in July, before this event. The Farley Mowat interview is already posted. — SDC


Once in a Lifetime
An evening with Farley and Claire Mowat, and Elizabeth May
Bras d’Or Lakes Inn, St. Peter’s, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia
July 24th, 2010  6:00- 8:00 PM
Join Farley for an intimate evening of conversation, stories, and maybe a wolf howl or two! 

Farley and Claire spend late spring to fall at their nearby nature oasis at Brick Point, which they have donated to Nova Scotia Nature Trust. The lovely Bras d’Or Inn is on the banks of the Bras d’Or Lakes, adjacent to the St. Peter’s Canal, connecting this inland sea to the larger ocean. The view is spectacular. The company is better.
This is a key fundraiser for the Green Party of Canada to prepare for the next election to help ensure that Elizabeth May wins her seat in Saanich Gulf Islands. St. Peter’s is approximately a three hour drive from Halifax, an hour from Sydney. Of course, you can sail there too (no travel estimates are reliable!) Please enquire for details about cost, and other questions you might have, to me,  Marlene Wells (
Why not plan a Cape Breton weekend? We have reserved a few rooms at the Inn for those who sleep over. Please inquire if you would like a package deal – party and sleep over. It’s going to be a great evening, hope to see you there!
Cost: $400/person (after taxes this will cost you $100) This cost does not include your room if you are staying for the night.  If you would like to respond on line you can click here!
We will also have a silent auction featuring some of Farley’s books in first editions.
Contact Marlene Wells ( to reserve. Space is limited.
We also have a Facebook Event set up, you can go here to see it, take a minute and look around, perhaps leave a comment!
If you know someone who would love to have this opportunity, please pass along this invitation to them!
