Sheldon Currie, one of the Maritimes’ premier storytellers (Down the Coaltown Road, The Glace Bay Miner’s Museum) returns to Antigonight to delight with stories and poems full of irony and whimsy based on regional life and just making it up.
Update: Mr. Currie is regretfully unable to attend Antigonight.
Those attending Antigonight should take the opportunity to view Portraits of Injustice, an 8 painting exhibition by Carol Morrison hosted by the People’s Place Library located on 283 Main St., Antigonish.
Organized by ASAP (the All-of-Us Society for Art Presentation): Antigonish’s Artist Run Centr and sanctioned by Amnesty International, the eight works depict brave people in other countries fighting for rights that we take for granted.

Antigonight will feature the music of the Wild Hearts — Elizabeth Glinz and Rebecca Wild.
The Wild Hearts will dazzle and thrill your auditory senses by serenading you with romantic and soul-filled song. Like troubadours of old, these relentless musicians seek to please both the audience and the deep yearnings of their own hearts, weaving magic with voice, violin, ukulele, guitar, percussive inventions and whatever else is lying around.
