“A Day with You in Paradise” A Picture Perfect Book

Posted: July 11, 2011

When We Get There - LENNIE GALLANTAward-winning singer songwriter and North Rustico, Prince Edward Island native Lennie Gallant has always painted beautiful pictures with his words and music.

Now “A Day with You in Paradise” from his Juno-nominated album When We Get There has 'come to life' through the  lovely artwork of Nova Scotia’s own Patsy MacKinnon.

Patsy MacKinnon“This beautiful picture book depicts a family’s fun-filled day at a Prince Edward Island beach. Racing past dunes, building sand castles, and singing songs by a bonfire at night, the family revels in the peaceful beauty of an Island beach. Lennie Gallant’s lyrical description of a PEI summer day is matched perfectly with Patsy MacKinnon’s sun-soaked illustrations”.

There will be book launch at Confederation Centre Public Library in Charlottetown, PEI this Wednesday, July 13, 2011 at 7pm.

Join Lennie & Patsy as they celebrate their wonderful work – and tell ‘em we sent ya! SABS
