Chris Benjamin is the new writer in residence at Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library:
It all started at the age of six years old when he wrote the story of a boy and his dinosaur. After that, Chris Benjamin was hooked on writing. As a shy boy growing up in Beaver Bank, Nova Scotia, writing was a creative outlet that he knew he was good at – getting praise locally, nationally and internationally for his work.
It appears the Pictou-Antigonish Regional Library (PARL) also took notice, which is why he has been chosen as their 2014 Writer-in-Residence. For more on Chris’ activities at PARL, visit the News & Events page.
