Monday August 18th on The Morning News


We’ve all played a board game or two before but did you ever think about creating your own? Sam Fraser has! At 6:45 we’ll meet Sam and take a look at his role-playing board game Rogues to Riches. It’s been a hit in Halifax for a couple years now and there’s a kickstarter campaign launched to take it worldwide.

It hasn’t been a really hot summer but we have experienced the kind of temperatures and humidity that make it great for fruit flies. At 7:15 we’ll get a visit from Andrew Hebda, resident bug expert at The Museum Of Natural History to tell us how this year compares to others and what we can do to get rid of these pesky bugs.

At 7:45 we’ll take a walk down memory lane with Halifax Public Libraries.  We share some great old photos and chat about the community impact the Spring Garden Road Memorial Public Library has had over the years, and how its spirit will live on in the new Halifax Central Library.

Plans are coming together for the upcoming Gottingen 250 celebrations happening on Gottingen Street next month. At 8:15 we’ll meet a few of the organizers to talk about the new website that will help guide people through the events planned. They’ll also tell us about a special radio station, 106.9GotAVoice FM, that will be broadcasting to the North End throughout the festival.

And at 8:45 we’ll all get on the same page!   One Book Nova Scotia chats about this year’s selection:  Roost by Ali Bryan.  Find out why you’ll want to read this book – while thousands of others do the same.
