Alanna Mitchell and Pauline

Alanna Mitchell, author of Seasick and I in conversation at the Toronto Public Library. 

What a thrill it was to meet Alanna, a highly respected science journalist, author and playwright. Her book Seasick, published about ten years ago affected me profoundly and alerted many of us to the necessity of taking better care of our oceans. The play, based on her book, starred Alanna and received standing ovations all over the country. Alanna is smart and funny and one of the best interviewers I have ever met. She asked me to describe what Howe Sound looks like and feels like and sounds like, encouraging me to enter into a world I spent three years writing about and the past twenty years living in. The whole evening was wonderful and I enjoyed telling Toronto about the my beautiful home in Atl’kitsem. Alanna is currently Playwright in Residence at the Toronto Playwrights Centre working on another play. I look forward to what that creative mind will offer us.
