This is the opening paragraph to a story local author Sue Borgersen submitted to an international anthology publisher this summer. It was written shortly after the tragedy that hit the clothing factory in Bangladesh. In the creative non fiction piece, Sue compares conditions there now with Stanfield's here in Nova Scotia 100 years ago. She called the piece Knickers. "I don't generally write non fiction," says Borgersen, "but this was something I was compelled to do. I was shaken by the tragedy. I had no intention of submitting it anywhere for publication. But I did. Then I was blown away when I heard it [the story] had been accepted." The anthology, Foreign and Far Away, explores the relationship between people and the landscapes and settings they live in. An eclectic range of writing evokes the diversities, similarities, connections and misunderstandings of life in foreign places through 38 short stories, 37 non-fiction articles and 19 poems from expat authors and poets around the world and was launched worldwide on Monday. But Sue received an email from Bangladesh last week, the day another ten deaths occurred in a factory fire. It was from the spouse of the EU Ambassador, who is currently fighting to get improvements in the Ready-Made Garments Sector. ...Your story will be read at the launch here in Bangladesh on Monday... "So the story did find the right place in the end. If it gives people cause to think, even act, then it and I will have done our jobs. For me, that is the real job of an author, whether it be fiction or otherwise," says Borgersen.

This will be a fun, family weekend of workshops and on-stage performances but there will be ample opportunity for informal jamming sessions - ukulele players love nothing better than making music together and "that is what this ceilidh is all about," says Susan Borgersen, one of the volunteer organizers.
"We knew such festivals were held in other countries," adds Borgersen "but the ukulele has a special place in the hearts of people across this land."
...
Organizing committee chairperson Susan Borgersen said that the popularity of the ukulele has grown locally by leaps and bounds since the Bridgewater Parks and Recreation Department began offering a beginner's course for individuals aged 50 and up just over two years ago. "It was at the high school on Wednesday nights," she recalled."I think there were about ten of us turned up for the first class.The following January another group signed up as beginners." Ms Borgersen said that initially, "most of us didn't even know which way to hold it," however, over time they progressed to a point that not only could they play their instruments, "but we're also reading music and writing our own music." After the completion of their basic training on the instrument, the inaugural class decided they would like to continue playing together as a group on a regular basis.The result was the formation of The South Shore Ukulele Players, now numbering over 30 strong, who meet every Thursday afternoon at the Bridgewater arena's Senior Citizen's Centre. Under the tutelage of instructor Sandra Obritsch, the group is made up of people as old as 89 who "come from all walks of life, from all areas, and I don't think any one of us knew each other until now. "And we've become really good friends," Ms Borgersen added. Along with their usual weekly sessions, the group also takes their show on the road, visiting various nursing homes in the county and performing for and with the residents. "We have little song sheets that we hand out and they sing along with us," she said.
...
Ms Borgersen believes the ceilidh will be an excellent tourist attraction for the area, particularly since it will take place during what is generally regarded as the slower "shoulder" season of the year. "It will be a fun, family weekend," she explained."This will be good for the South Shore."
