Welcome to our first fictional serial, ‘Atlantic Nights’.
If follows the story of a family who is coping with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Based on ‘One Thousand and One Nights’, sometimes called ‘Arabian Nights’, ‘Atlantic Nights’ has family members making up tales to tell their mom about their father while she settles into life in a special care facility. As they recount stories they think carry only a portion of truth, they start to discover they don’t know everything about the lives of their parents.
The serial is written by TC Media’s Atlantic columnist and award-winning author Russell Wangersky.
Join us here each day for a new chapter in the story of the Connors family. We will be publishing a new chapter daily from Monday to Saturday for the summer. And if you miss any chapters, you will find links to them in this site.
‘Atlantic Nights’ is sponsored by Masstown Market in Masstown Nova Scotia.
