Chair: Christine Blair

Hattie was born in Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia, and raised in Lower Selma on the Fundy Shore. The mother of nine children, this former school teacher and reporter for the Halifax Chronicle Herald, both in Dartmouth and Truro and as a columnist for the Truro News.

Her journalism experience has taken her to numerous Nova Scotia villages where—although not part of her assignment—she meticulously copied down the yarns and fables that local elders were eager to recount. Hattie was determined this local folklore should not go forgotten as generations passed.
