The Cove Journal - JoDee Samuelson

JoDee Samuelson

Life on the Island’s South Shore

South Shore resident JoDee Samuelson is no stranger to the pages of The Buzz. For the last eight years, she has been contributing a monthly column that chronicles the soft edges of rural life on Prince Edward Island. Published by Island Studies Press, The Cove Journal gathers seven years of her writing and original illustrations into a collection that celebrates the passing of the seasons, the rise and fall of gardens, the friendship with neighbours, and simple daily life in “the Cove.”

If The Cove Journal is the first thing you turn to when you open a copy of the latest Buzz, now you can experience JoDee’s “insights, imagination, and humour all over again,” says Peter Richards, Managing Editor of The Buzz. If you are new to PEI, or JoDee’s column, you will enjoy her reflections and how she captures the essence of rural life on PEI.

Born and raised on the Canadian prairies, filmmaker, and artist JoDee Samuelson has lived on the beautiful South Shore of Prince Edward Island for the past thirty years. Her animated films have been shown at festivals around the world, winning numerous awards for this Island filmmaker. She is a member of the Canoe Cove Women’s Institute, a wood carver, painter, gardener, and a baker of delicious bread.

Jodee will launch The Cove Journal at the Beaconsfield Carriage House on November 15 at 7 pm. JoDee will be joined by fiddler Roy Johnstone, accompanied by Margie Carmichael on guitar. Books will be available for sale.
