Project Title: Finding Peggy


About the Project

When author Ivan Fraser told me how he had struggled to read and write since childhood, I wanted to help him share his story and inspire others to read and write.

Ivan is a talented oral storyteller, so I went with a 1st-person mini-documentary format. With characteristic zeal, Ivan recruited his family to recreate scenes from his book, Peggy of the Cove. His wife, April, sewed a period smock for a young family member who has an uncanny resemblance to the main character, Peggy. The period wardrobe and the beautiful historic locations provided a perfect setting and look.

The story of Peggy’s search for her identity could be a metaphor of Ivan’s own journey to overcome a lifelong struggle to read and write. Thanks for a fun and very worthwhile project.[/one_half]
