An alien LANDING right here in the MARITIMES!? Join us as we welcome Anne Degrace signing her new book The Sounding Line at Westminster Books, October 5th 7pm. ALL WELCOME Young Pocket Snow has a lot to contend with even before the UFO crashes into Perry's Harbour. As the UFO incident creates a media and military vortex, another is happening within the Snow household as Pocket's mother approaches death, and his father tries to cope. At Crosbey's General Store, Shirley presides as information clearing-house and coffee-pourer, and it is here that locals gather to discuss how the Coast Guard, RCMP, Canadian Navy and U.S. military--a knot of vessels squatting mysteriously out on the Sound--aren't talking to the people of Perry's. While en route to cover the crash, Ottawa reporter Rodney Nowland meets Wanda, a psychic UFO-chaser hoping to communicate with visitors from space. The CBC sends a film crew; a reporter from the Halifax paper is expected at any moment. Meanwhile the Snow family holds its breath, and yet, with the arrival of strangers, the spark of possibility touches down, alighting briefly upon them all--even Merle Snow. Sounding Line is based on a true incident that occurred in 1967 in Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia. The incident attracted national and international news media, and has been the subject of books and documentaries. It is considered Canada's most significant UFO incident, and is sometimes referred to as "Canada's Roswell." (MadameOlenska)
