Finding Farley in Lunenburg.

I couldn’t resist stopping in a bookstore today called Lunenburg Bound Books. Not a far cry from my own business name of Homeward Bound Books. Took a quick look around and happened to overhear the owner in conversation with another book dealer about a book he had just acquired. A first edition of Farley Mowat’s Never Cry Wolf, with the double dust jackets. We chatted about our mutual connections to this iconic Canadian – that he spent his summers in Nova Scotia and winters in Port Hope and that I am a proud Port Hope Public Library board member, where a bronze bust of Farley now sits in Farley’s Lookout on our library’s second floor. In the end, I bought the book to add to my own Farley inventory and I also picked up a store t-shirt. There is a saying on the shirt that reads “Arguably, one of Lunenburg’s top three bookshops”. “How many bookstores are there in Lunenburg?”, you might ask. Three.
