Celebrated Nova Scotia storyteller, Laurent D’Entremont, has a sharp eye, long memory and charming style. The Pubnicos are fortunate to have such a chronicler to preserve with such warmth and understanding — the stories of their fats-vanishing traditional lifestyle.
DONALD CAMERON Writer/Author
I have had great pleasure of hearing Laurent telling his stories on CBC’s Information Morning for years now and I never grow tired of his tales! Laurent has the rare ability to capture details and nuance without getting bogged down in facts and figures. He has tremendous respect for the individuals and culture that he portrays and he brings his characters to life with his enthusiasm and humour. This is a hearty serving of “the good ‘ol days” served with a dash of nostalgia and a generous dollop of fun.

Laurent D’Entremont’s stories from by-gone days have graced the pages of the Yarmouth Vanguard too many times to count over the decades. For our newsroom staff it is always with great pride and pleasure that we offer Laurent’s down-to-earth storytelling to our readers. His tales of local history and past traditions coupled with humorous anecdotes from his own life, add a true community feel to our community newspaper. We are indeed fortunate that he has chosen to share his storytelling talent with us all.
