Beschreibung

Nana Noonan is somewhat of a local legend in Canada's Pacific Northwest. Telkwa (Pop. 852) in the late 50's and early 60's is not much different from other small towns across North America. Every town reluctantly owns a Nana. Or wishes they did.

There are lots of things that get Nana going. Telkwa's only Jehovah's Witness tops her list.

'That Damn Jehovah!' is the incessant phrase in the hundreds of letters Nana sends her 13-year-old granddaughter, Maggie Mulvaney. They live 150 miles apart, and Nana and her letters show Maggie the human aspects of life.

The Jehovah is hell-bent on saving Nana. His high hopes on salvation equal her intent to remain as she is: hell-bent on being herself. After all, she is an Anglican.

Nana tells Maggie that it is important to be fair to your fellow humans. As long as they don't drive you to do something foolish. Maggie thinks about the lessons learned at Nana's knee. She writes back and offers suggestions on how Nana might better deal with the Jehovah.

The townsfolk place bets on Nana and the Jehovah and when they will have their next 'set to.' Cash exchanges hands on a fairly regular basis.

Only two people visit Nana more often than her family: Constable Reems of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and her ill-fated devotee, who visits every Saturday, rain, shine, sleet or snow.

Nana and the Jehovah reach a stalemate one fall day in 1960. Her Irish temper and accuracy with a gun is what gets Nana into trouble.

And Telkwa isn't the same without Nana Noonan . or that Damn Jehovah.

Portrait

You can take the girl out of the North, but you can't take the North out of the girl. Who would want to? Margo Bates was born and raised in British Columbia's Pacific Northwest. She lived there until she was in her late twenties and her quick wit and an unusual turn of phrase capture that distinct Northern voice.

An experienced public speaker, Margo is a natural. Interviewers find her entertaining, engaging, and easy to talk to. As a publicist for more years than she wants to count, she understands the media's needs. She knows when to keep the chat going and when to let the story tell itself.

Margo got her start as a public speaker in grade six. She generated her first review by throwing some humor into the script when narrating her school's Christmas Pageant. Following the show, the principal said, "Margo is destined for something ... probably a detention." Since then, she's continued as a keynote speaker, emcee, and host of public and private events.

A traveler, photographer, gourmet cook and author of fiction, non-fiction and cookbooks, Margo also conducts workshops for writers in fiction and humor writing, research techniques for fiction and non-fiction, publicity and social media marketing.

A professional member of the Canadian Authors Association, Margo is past president of the Metro Vancouver branch. She's also an alumna of the Erma Bombeck Humor Writers' Workshop, University of Dayton, Ohio.

She lives in a seaside town near Vancouver, Canada.
