Closing Keynote: Sense and Serendipity: Discovering Women's Stories Through Historical Research
    Friday May 25, 2012 10:30am - 12:00pm @ Denton Hall (12 Horton Avenue, Wolfville, NS B4P 1K9)

    Ami McKay’s debut novel The Birth House was a # 1 bestseller in Canada, winner of three CBA Libris Awards, nominated for the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, and a book club favourite around the world. Her new novel, The Virgin Cure, is inspired by the life of her great- great grandmother, Dr. Sarah Fonda Mackintosh, a female physician in nineteenth century New York City. Born and raised in Indiana, Ami now lives in Nova Scotia.

    Ms. McKay will give an illustrated talk discussing her research process for both The Birth House and The Virgin Cure. A question and answer period, as well as a book signing, will follow the presentation.
