Queen of the Low-Res MFA turns to mothers, daughters

The final "mentor" reading of the new program in Creative Nonfiction at University of King's College featured Lori A. May, probably the world's leading expert on low-residency MFA programs. In fact, she has written a book about them: The Low-Residency MFA Handbook. Later, May would dazzle with a reading about mothers, daughters, and family relations. Above, she soldiers on while dealing with Our Hero and author Stephen Kimber, a prime mover behind the Halifax initiative.
Not long after these photos were taken, the redoubtable Beth Hitchcock -- make a note of that name -- would win an advance copy of 50 Canadians Who Changed the World by correctly answering a skill-testing question while her colleagues were still scratching their heads and picking up sticks.
