On Saturday afternoon, August 19, Napoleon author lian goodall met visitors at the Elman Campbell Museum in Newmarket as part of their Nova Scotia Day. lian showed images and chatted with visitors about the life of Nova Scotian contralto, Portia White. Elsewhere in the museum, her husband, Derek Cooke, shared his experiences as curator at the Fortress of Louisbourg.

On Tuesday evening, October 3rd, goodall returned to the Elman Campbell Museum. This time she helped kick off Women's History Month with a talk based on her Napoleon book Singing Towards the Future: the Story of Portia White. It was interesting to meet people in the audience who were descendants of Black Nova Scotians!
