The author of Hope For Wildlife: True Stories of Animal Rescue, the best-selling Nova Scotian book of the past two weeks, will be in Mahone Bay this coming weekend for a signing, reading, and discussion. Ray MacLeod will be accompanied by Nicole Payne, a staff member of the Hope for Wildlife Society (, the organization on whose work the book is based.

MacLeod & Payne will be at P’lovers, Mahone Bay, on Sunday June 19th from 2:00-3:30.

From Nimbus Publishing of Halifax, the book includes 14 stories of wildlife taken under the wing of the Hope for Wildlife Society over its 13 year history. It also features colour photographs from society founder Hope Swinimer’s personal collection of shots taken by staff and visitors.

The book has been listed for the past two weeks by The Chronicle-Herald as the most popular local publication. In the first three weeks of its release, it sold out three times at Dartmouth’s largest book store and is either signed out or on hold at all 20 Halifax municipal libraries.
