While I’ve been busy with my student-midwife life attending births in Alberta, Sima has been getting around. Random sightings here & there (do synagogue bookstores count as random?), but none more so than this: my friend Amelia, a fellow student-midwife, came across Sima in Port Hardy, a small town on Northern Vancouver Island where she’s currently placed in a rural practice. Port Hardy, whose highway welcome sign reads: “Where the highway ends and the adventure begins.” Port Hardy: First Nations, Fishermen, and now, Sima. Amelia writes:
How excited am I to have found your book in a tiny bookstore/cafe in Port Hardy!? I caused quite a stir as I started to rearrange their display to move your book to the centre and the Twilight series out of the way. When questioned, I said “This book was written by my friend, she’s local and it rocks, plus, those Twilight books are sooooooo last year.” And I even convinced an old lady to buy it for her cruise ship trip to Alaska that was leaving in 10 minutes!
Hooray for Amelia, and for Sima!
